Screenwriter Clarifies Dhanush’s Film Abandonment Over ‘Creative Differences’

Actors Dhanush and Malavika Mohanan are currently gearing up for the release of their upcoming action-thriller film, Maaran. However, days before the film’s premiere, screenwriter and dialogue writer Vivek took to social media to clarify that he had left the film due to creative differences.

Watching the trailer for Maaran, a large number of netizens praised Vivek for the film’s dialogues. It was at this time, when the screenwriter announced his estrangement with the directors.

Taking to Twitter, Vivek urged netizens to credit the film’s actual dialogue writer for his prowess. Additionally, he cited “creative differences” as his reason for leaving the film.

“Very happy to see so much, such love for the #Maaran n Dialogues trailer. As many of you have pointed out, maaran is coming out as a stylish, commercial and emotional film. I’m equally excited to watch a movie like U. But these dialogues are not mine. Credits to writer. Due to creative differences, I chose to leave #Maaran as writer and dialoguer. Thanks to the team for respecting my decision (sic),” he tweeted.

However, while concluding the announcement, Vivek thanked the creators of Maaran for approaching him. He praised the film’s lead role, Dhanush, for being a “great performer”.

He wrote: “Today I am part of some of India’s greatest films as a screenwriter and dialoguer. I will always remember that Maaran was the starting point. I owe a lot to @SathyaJyothi (@TGThyagarajan sir, Arjun , Siddharth, Sendhil , Prashanth Brothers) for placing so much trust in me. I owe a lot to @dhanushkraja sir for everything I learned from the great artist. (sic)
