Fresh trouble for Vijay Sethupathi: Ilaiyaraaja files a complaint against the actor's movie!

In what has become fresh trouble for popular actor Vijay Sethupathi, his upcoming movie 'Kadaisi Vivasayi' which he acted and bankrolled, had invited a complaint, which sparked speculations over whether the movie would face another deferment of its release. What has drawn more attention is that the complaint was filed by music maestro Isainani Ilaiyaraaja. 

Kadaisi Vivasayi is a movie about farmers and is helmed by 'Kakka Muttai' fame Manikandan. The movie was inching closer to release by this month, however, the complaint from the legendary music director has come as a shock for the movie team. According to reports, Ilaiyaraaja was signed to score the music for the movie and he also had completed the background score. However, director Manikandan was not impressed with Ilaiyaraaja's music and he had asked the latter initially for a modification. 

However, Ilaiyaraaja had refused to change the background score following which Manikandan had approached Santhosh Narayanan to score a fresh tune of the background score. He also had composed the new track as per the director's storyline and the movie team went on to release the new trailer of the movie, which had shown Santhosh Narayanan as the music director, which had angered the veteran music director. 

As the sequel of the change, Ilaiyaraaja has now filed a complaint against the movie to the music director's union in which he said that the change of the music and music director was done without his knowledge or permission. The reports say that he had asked the union to take action against the movie due to which the movie's release may get deferred. 

Importantly, Vijay Sethupathi had recently joined the production unit of the movie Kadaisi Vivasayi after getting impressed by the story. As one of the producers, Ilaiyaraaja's complaint had troubled Vijay Sethupathi who is busy at the post-production works to release the movie by this month. Kadaisi Vivasayi has been slated for a theatrical release and the movie had braced up several delays. Earlier it was speculated that the movie will get released in September this year and the release was then postponed to December. 

Kadaisi Vivasayi is a comedy-drama film, which stars an eighty-five-year-old farmer Nallanadi in the lead role. The movie is produced by Eros International and Vijay Sethupathi is part of the production unit. While Vijay Sethupathi plays a cameo role, Yogi Babu, Muneeshwaran, Kali Muthu, Chaplin Sundar, and Rebecca Philip play important roles. Cinematography and editing were done by Ayananka Bose and Ajithkumar respectively.
