Vishal's 2019 film Action under Trident Arts failed commercially and ended up as a loss venture for the producer. Vishal had already promised the producer to compensate for the losses by doing a film with MS Anandan and narrated a story which was accepted by the producer. But, again to the producer's dismay, Vishal backed the same film titled Chakra under his own production and will soon release it on OTT. Vishal and the banner were entangled in a court case for the same and the court has directed Vishal to make a guarantee of Rs 8.29 crore to compensate the losses incurred for Action. The court also ordered him to file a report on the nature of the guarantee, the hearing of which will take place on Oct 9.
