Cinematographer Santosh Sivan, who worked in Mani Ratnam's ‘Chekka Chivantha Vanam’ is in a spot of bother following his controversial tweet.

He posted a meme picture, which showed an angry dog with a caption 'Producer while paying technicians' and a picture of the same dog smiling with the caption 'Producers while paying heroine'.

This has not gone down well with producers. A few of them even urged Tamil Film Producers Council to take action against Santosh Sivan for demeaning them.

Meanwhile Santosh Sivan is all set for his next directorial in Malayalam after ‘Urumi’.

As part of the cast, he has roped in Manju Warrier, Kalidas Jayaram and Soubin Shahir for the three pivotal characters in the film.

Santosh Sivan had earlier planned to do ‘Kunjali Marakkar IV’ with Mammootty but seems to have dropped the project.

The Manju Warrier-starrer will reportedly begin filming in Alappuzha on 20 October.
