A native of Tripunithura filed a police complaint on Tuesday against the creators of the popular Malayalam film ‘RDX’, alleging financial fraud due to unpaid promised profits from her investment in the movie. Anjana Abraham filed the complaint at Hill Palace Police Station, a month after a similar case involving the makers of ‘Manjummel Boys’.

According to the complaint, Anjana was approached by Weekend Blockbusters, owned by Sophia and James Paul, to invest Rs 6 crore in the film directed by Nahas Hidayath. Despite a written promise from the producers that she would receive 30% of the film’s profits, Anjana claims she has only received Rs 3 crore and six lakh to date. She further alleged that this amount was paid only after numerous requests and demands.
