South actor Vishal was recently directed to pay Rs 4 crores to Trident Arts after they filed a lawsuit against him in Madras High Court. The plea filed by the production house elaborates on the losses they incurred while producing the actor's 2019 release, Action. The judge had ordered Vishal to prepare a report on the nature of the guarantee for the losses incurred for Action's failure at the box office. Post the court's verdict, the actor is now planning to file an appeal against the judgement.

Trident Arts, the producers of Action have also sought an injunction against director MS Anandan for filming 'Chakra' with the same story narrated that was narrated to him by them and his subsequent decision to release the Vishal starrer on OTT. The actor had apparently guaranteed to pay the losses to the producers if the movie failed to perform at the box office. And despite its poor performance at the ticket windows Vishal never paid for the losses that he had guaranteed in the first place and hence the makers had to think about taking a legal route finally.
