Vishal reveals why he's directing Thupparivaalan 2 sans Mysskin!

By Rinku Gupta
Actor and producer Vishal has now turned director with Thupparivaalan2 after a fall out with director Mysskin, midway into the shoot of the  sequel.

Today, releasing the first look of the film,  an emotional Vishal has written about the whole issue in a letter, and   posted it on social media, giving an insight into the reason for turning director.

He wrote:

 "What are the reasons for a Director to opt out of a film midway?
 AS a Producer I still wonder why does a Director, who specifically wanted to write the script in Canada and UK and
spent the Producers money to the tune of  close to 35 Lakhs for the above expenses including travel, accommadation,  after having started shoot without proper planning of location hunting, after having spent
close to 13 Crores of INR.

Why would a Director opt out of a Movie. midway ?

As a Producer. I wonder.

Is it because I didn't have the money to complete the film, No.

Is it wrong if a Producer pin points the mistakes of a Director during the production of the film, to
especially when close to 15 Lakhs INR per day was spent for a 3 to4 hoursof shoot in U.K. ? No..

Is it wrong if a Producer requests whether we can shoot 2 scenes a day, or shoot day and night to bring down the cost of shoot ? No.

I still wonder because its as bad as you abandon your own kid in an orphanage.,..

After all these wrong doings, is it right for the Director after stalling the shoot... incompleting the shoot on Dec 11 2019, returning back to India on Jan 4, 2020, coming to VFF office on lst week of Feb. 2020, saying he will not be a part of the project ?

Does the Director even remotely know the Interest Incurred and the troubles the Producer goes through to make ends meet during the process of film making ?

Anyways, all for good, the only reason I give this statement is because I don't want anyother producer, be it
veteran or a newcomer to go through what I went through during the shoot ot what I am going through right now
as a Producer.

Most importantly, no Producer should go through such an ordeal. Thankfully knowing the nuances af film making, I
decided not to abandon this project but to go ahead and direct the film myself and give my utmost best and release the film and make sure that this film reaches the expectations of everyone.

The sole purpose of the statement is not to tarnish ones image but it is only to make sure that nobody else falls prey
to such people especially Producers. It might be a public outcry, but itl time as the Industry bleeds with all its short
comings, I expect all producers, new and old, to know what a reputed production house like Vishal Film Factory
(VFF) did go through during the shoot ofThupparivaalan 2.

Seeking your blessings and wishes for my directorial debut and hoping to do the best as a Director. "
