Sasi Kumar has said that Ameer’s statement that he had a story very similar to that of Subramanipuram hurt him very much. Though Ameer did not mention that Sasi Kumar had flicked his story, the statement hurt Sasi Kumar very much.
Sasi Kumar said that he had first told the story his close buddy not connected with the film industry and then to Ameer. But Ameer, at that point of time, did not mention anything about the Subramaniapuram story being very similar to the one he had in mind. Sasi Kumar is reported to have told that if Ameer mentioned that he had such a story, he would have relinquished the idea of making Subramaniapuram for his guru!
