The Rebel Controversy between director Raghava Lawerence and the movie producers, Bhagwan and Pulla Rao seem to be not concluding. Recently the producers have approached Jubilee Hills police alleging cheating and threatening by Lawerence. Police have registered cases on Lawrence according to sections 406, 420 and asked Lawrence to appear in front of them.
Sensing danger Lawerence had applied got anticipatory bail from court. As we got to the backdrop of the case, Lawerence approached J.Bhagavan and J.Pullarao with the script of Rebel. He entered into an agreement with them that he will make the film with Prabhas in the lead role within the budget of Rs.22.5 crores budget. But the film’s budget went on to cross Rs 40 crore. The producers have suffered severe losses as the film bombed miserably at the box office.
The Producers have demanded compensation from Lawrence as per the agreement and even tried for a settlement through the film chamber. When nothing worked, finally they now allege that Lawerence is threatening them with out paying their money. On the other side, Lawerence is refusing to comment on this issue and says he is busy with the post production of his upcoming film, Muni-3.
