Yesterday, Hansraj Saxena was arrested by the city police in the Chennai airport when he flew from Hyderabad to Chennai. The Sun Pictures official shot to fame during the audio launch and release of the mega budget film Endhiran.
Since then, he has been the name behind the network’s production house. Sun Pictures had bagged many a film last year or for the last couple of years. Hansraj Saxena has been behind the aggressive purchase and marketing of films under the Sun Pictures banner.
He was arrested yesterday, on July 3, 2011, following a complaint by a distributor who claimed to have not been paid his dues amounting to Rs. 82.5 lakhs when Sun Pictures purchased the Rs. 1.25 crore valued film less than one third of its original value.
He had threatened the complainant into selling the distribution rights of the film and now, Hansraj Saxena, had again threatened when he asked him to pay the dues. Although the complaint was made shortly after the film’s release, the police had taken action on him only yesterday.
