According to a regional entertainment website, differences arose between RGV and Natti during the release of the film Maa Istam. Producer Natti approached the court seeking a stay on the release of RGV’s film ‘Maa Istam’ until the veteran director paid him Rs 5 crore, which he apparently had taken sometime back. Later the court stayed the release of the film.
Criticizing Ram Gopal Varma, Natti had said, “Ram Gopal Varma is a big cheater. I have to pay 5 crore 29 lakhs. When I ask for money, there is no response. I worked with RGV for 20 years. The director not only cheated me, but also fooled many people.”
On the other hand, RGV also did not take things lightly and decided to take the legal route against Natti. He had filed a defamation suit against him for making outrageous allegations. RGV also filed a complaint against the civil judge of Telangana High Court for banning his film.
