Director Mussanje Mahesh has been asked to 'Get Out' of the Ganesh starrer 'Kool' by its producer Shilpa Ganesh. Mahesh has left the project and he along with four of his associates and assistants arrived in Bangalore on Saturday morning. The shooting for the film continues in Ooty.
The reason for Mahesh's exit turns out to be cinematographer Ratnavelu .
Chitraloka.com editor KM Veeresh met director Mahesh today morning at Majestic as soon as he arrived to Bangalore. Speaking to Chitraloka.com Mahesh said "The shooting started on Thursday. Every shot I composed was rejected by Rathnavelu and he would change it completely. As a director, this is not how I want to work. I brought this to the notice of Ganesh and Shilpa. She said I should be happy to work with a cinematographer of his caliber. I agree. But, I do not want to take the credit for someone else’s work and said the interference in my work cannot be tolerated. She asked me to 'get out' of the film. There was no reason for me to stay there after that," Mahesh said.
While Mahesh was leaving Ganesh and Shilpa also pestered him to give a NOC. Mahesh has told them that it is not something that has to be given on a shooting spot and that he would give it to them in Bangalore.
