Edgar Wright has finally revealed the real reason behind his sudden exit from the Ant Man film. “I think the most diplomatic answer is I wanted to make a Marvel movie but I don’t think they really wanted to make an Edgar Wright movie,” he explained. “It was a really heartbreaking decision to have to walk away after having worked on it for so long.”
Actor Dileep has been linked to the sexual assault and abduction of a popular Malayalam actress. Shah, a film actor and director, told reporters that in March he got a call from a person by name Vishnu, who asked him to tell Dileep that if the latter does not give him Rs 1.50 crore he would be forced to inform police that the superstar was involved in the conspiracy to kidnap the popular actress.
“He told me that it was with great difficulty that he got my number and he wished to speak to him (Dileep) about details of the kidnap case. I said I will return the call, and since my mobile did not have recording facility, I called back from my friends mobile that had recording facility. Vishnu then said he is under tremendous pressure from certain people involved in the film industry to mention Dileep’s name (in connection with the crime) and they have promised him more than Rs 2 crore. So Vishnu asked me to tell Dileep to give him Rs 1.50 crore, and if he did not he will say Dileep’s name,” Shah told the media over phone.
