STR, dad 'conned' by agents over ‘Love Anthem’ project
T Rajhendherr (that's how he spells his name these days) filed a complaint with the Chennai Police Commissioner on Monday, alleging that two persons cheated him and his son STR aka Simbu.
Talking to journalists later, he said that his production house, Kural TV Creations Pvt Ltd, had entered into a contract with Ramji Soma and his associate Talvinder Batti from Canada to rope in international singers Akon, David Guetta and either Nicole Scherzinger or Rihanna to perform in the album Love Anthem, a brain child of STR.
"The entire project was planned at a cost of $500,000. The agents took $100,000 from me to secure the services of Akon and had promised to refund me if the singer could not be signed for the album," he said.
Alleging that they failed to sign the singers, TR said apart from violating the terms of the contract, they refused to refund the cash.
We had to bear additional expenditure as we had to engage another agency to approach the artists and complete the album, he added.
