Pretty Priya Anand turned the ‘saviour’ for the entire crew of Muthuramalingam, her second film opposite Gautham Karthik after Vai Raja Vai, recently when they ran out of money to pay up the hotel bills.
Muthuramalingam is already in the news as it brings together Maestro Ilaiyaraaja and lyricist and multi-faceted Panchu Arunachalam together after more than 25 years. It is directed by Rajadurai and is produced by Vijayprakash and Rekha Vijayprakash. The film has now run into unexpected hurdle.
Kamal Haasan has sung a song in the film which also features veterans Karthik and Prabhu in small cameos. The shoot of the film was being held in and around Kuttralam.
When the crew were ready to pack up their bags and leave for Chennai, it turned out that the producer didn’t pay the hotel bills and the hotel management strictly told the crew that they can’t vacate without paying up the bills.
Priya Anand stepped in, used her ATM card and withdrew requisite money to help the crew to pay the bills and vacate the hotel. The producers’ goof-up in not paying the bills has put a huge question mark over the film’s future. Priya Anand’s timely help, though, has won her laurels from her peers and others in the film industry!
