Director Atlee’s Mersal is a blockbuster at the box office and the film is said to have grossed more than 250cr at the box office. Despite giving a blockbuster, Sri Thenandal Films is yet to settle his final remuneration. Sources say that nearly 5.5cr rupees is pending from the production side and Atlee is pissed off with the unorganized production unit.
Thalapathy Vijay is the only encouragement for Atlee and he promised him to get back the remaining remuneration. It is said that though Mersal is a hit, Thenandal Films are upset with Atlee because of his poor planning, they faced the heat from the Animal Welfare Board of India and Censor Board.
Atlee is currently in a foreign country for break and all the issues are expected to be solved soon.
