Mr A Abdul Hameed, the counsel for director, Gautham Vasudev Menon has issued a statement saying that the allegations by RS Infotainment are false and misleading. He clarified that RS Infotainment had first earlier filed a complaint on the same matter with the CCB in April, 2013. The CCB had investigated the matter and closed the case.
RS Infotainment had then filed the same complaint with the Magistrate Court, suppressing the fact that CCB had closed the case earlier. Even here the Investigating Authorities upon enquiry had filed a report closing the case. It has then again filed the same case with the High Court suppressing the fact that the case has been investigated and closed – twice.
Mr A Abdul Hameed stated that Gautham Vasudev Menon and Photon Kathaas have been vindicated twice by the authorities and he will be moving the High Court in this connection against RS Infotainment. He further stated that RS Infotainment was filing false cases suppressing facts.
Fox Star Studios had provided a letter to the authorities clearly detailing the accounts of the film Ekk Deewana Tha and that the film had made a loss of nearly Rs 9 crores. There was no profit from the film and so there cannot be any claim either against Mr Gautham Vasudev Menon nor against Photon Kathaas. RS Infotainment’s intention seems to be to harass and malign the reputation of Mr Gautham Menon and Photon Kathaas.
