Thiruvananthapuram: Director M.A. Nishad Wednesday filed a complaint against actress Padmapriya that she did not cooperate with him while shooting for his film "No 66 Madhura Bus".
Nishad has filed the complaint with the Producers' Association.
"She agreed to a remuneration of Rs.8,00,000 first. Later, she sent a message through her manager that she wanted another Rs.2,00,000. When I gave her the remuneration, I deducted the tax at source, but she insisted that she should be given that also," Nishad told reporters.
The producer-director added that she was not on time for the shooting and it created problems for him. "The production cost mounted. It was absolute non-cooperation. She did not take part in the marketing of the film. So, I had no other option but to register a formal complaint against her."
He feels that the film didn't do well a the box office despite having a good cast.
Sasi Ayyanchira of the Producers' Association confirmed that he has received a complaint against the actress.
