Sajid Nadiadwala, the producer of the film Housefull has filed a police complaint in Mumbai against a South Indian producer Thenappan alleging extortion, says a Mirror report.  

Thenappan has alleged that Nadiadwala's film Housefull is a copy of his 1998 Tamil film ‘Kadhala Kadhala' starring Kamal Hassan, Prabhu Deva, Rambha and Soundarya. The report says Thenappan had demanded Rs 3 crore as compensation from Nadiadwala. 





Sajid's friend Boney Kapoor tried to mediate, but Thenappan stuck to his demand. Consequently, Nadiadwala has now filed an extortion complaint with the police.  

Boney said, “I have withdrawn myself from this dispute because Thenappan is demanding an obscene amount”.  

Sajid says he had no option. “What could I do? The man is just not listening. It is a straight case of extortion. He has even called up some people who know me to pressure me into paying.”

Sajid had faced a similar situation at the time of release of his film Heyy Baby. “I had filed a police complaint against that producer. He ultimately apologized to me. Frankly, I can't handle such irrational complaints”.
