HYDERABAD:  A local court on Friday directed actress Shruti Haasan not to sign any new films following a case filed by Picture House Media Ltd, a leading media and entertainment house based out of Chennai and Hyderabad, against her for violating the terms of a contract.

The civil court, in its interim orders, restrained the actress from taking up new assignments until she finishes shooting for the film being produced by the petitioner. The daughter of veteran actor Kamal Haasan has been accused by the production house of pulling out of a project after dates were mutually finalized and agreed upon.

She has arbitrarily pulled out of the project citing clash of dates as a flimsy excuse,” the Picture House Media said in a statement.

According to it, Shruti walked out of the project after the first schedule was completed and informed it of her decision through an email.

Accusing the actress of unprofessional behaviour, the production house claimed loss of reputation, time and money running into several crores of rupees because of her. It went on to add that it initiated civil and criminal proceedings against Shruti to prevent such incidents in the future and safeguard the interest of its stakeholders. It further said the court had directed the police to investigate the matter.
