Kollywood producers Shibu Thameens and PT Selvakumar are in big trouble after the distributors from Chennai decided to stop the release of their upcoming films, Pokkiri Raja and Iru Murugan.

Their last project of 2015, Puli, which featured actors Vijay and Sridevi, turned out to be a disaster at the Box Office and incurred heavy losses for the producers as well as distributors.

The producers were already in the news after Sridevi reportedly filed a complaint against them for not paying her entire remuneration for the same film. The popular actor was rumored to have been offered a whopping Rs 5 core for her role.
