Ramayana
Movie
Legal
Trouble
Intensifies:

The
big
A-list
actors
starrer
movie
Ramayana
has
fallen
in
legal
trouble
and
this
issue
seems
to
be
intensifying.
One
of
the
ex-producers
of
the
movie,
Madhu
Mantena,
has
threatened
to
take
legal
action
amid
the
payment
related
issues.
According
to
the
reports,
Ramayana
was
in
making
since
2021
and
it
went
on
the
floor
only
in
2021.
Previously
Madhu
Mantena,
who
is
famous
for
his
works
like
Ghajini,
Udta
Punjab,
and
Lootera,
was
involved
in
the
movie.
But
later,
Prime
Focus’
Namit
Malhotra
and
Allu
Aravind
took
over
the
production
after
promising
Mantena
that
he
will
get
his
share
of
Intellectual
Property
rights.
But
what
happened
in
the
middle
that
led
to
Mantena
threaten
about
taking
legal
action?
Let
us
explore.

IS
RAMAYANA
FACING
LEGAL
TROUBLE?

Yes,
Ramayana
facing
legal
trouble
and
this
might
grow
gruesome
if
the
payment
issues
are
not
resolved.
Mantena
was
promised
by
Malhotra
that
he
will
paid
his
contribution
and
intellectual
property
rights.
It
is
reported
that
the
payment
amounts
in
crores.
Mantena
made
a
public
statement
recently
in
which
it
is
mentioned
that
Malhotra-led
Prime
Focus
failed
to
fulfill
their
contractual
obligation
to
pay
IP
rights.
Mantena
said
in
the
public
notice,
“The
members
of
the
public
are
hereby
informed
and
put
to
notice
that
Prime
Focus
Technologies
Limited
had
pursuant
to
an
Assignment
Agreement
entered
into,
with
our
client
Allu
Mantena
Media
Ventures
LLP
in
April
2024
sought
to
acquire
the
Intellectual
Property
Rights
of
our
client
in
the
Project
Ramayana
(being
the
script
and
material
‘Ramayana’
based
on
the
epic)
for
an
agreed
consideration
amount
as
per
the
terms
of
the
Assignment
Agreement.”

Mantena
then
added,
“The
assignment
under
this
Assignment
Agreement
has
not
taken
effect
to
date,
as
the
payment
required
to
be
made
by
Prime
Focus
Technologies
Limited
for
the
assignment
to
take
effect
has
not
been
made
to
our
client.” The
notice
further
claimed
that
since
the
payment
has
not
been
made
all
the
rights
remains
under
Mantena’s
name
and
if
any
other
person
use/exploits
the
right
then
Mantena
will
be
taking
the
“necessary
steps
as
many
be
advised.”
This
confirms
that
if
Mantena
is
not
paid
then
he
will
be
taking
a
legal
action
against
the
movie.
It
remains
to
be
seen
whether
the
co-producer
Yash
will
step
in
to
solve
the
legal
issue
or
not.

WILL
RAMAYANA
SHOOTING
STOP?

Until
now,
there
has
been
no
reports
about
whether
Ramayana
will
sink
or
continue
to
sail.
If
the
legal
rift
continues,
there
is
high
chance
of
the
movie’s
shooting
to
get
interrupted.
But,
it
is
expected
that
the
Prime
Focus
will
step
in
to
clear
the
payments
and
avoid
further
legal
issue.
