A financial fraud complaint has been lodged against the producers of the Malayalam film "RDX Robert Dony Xavier," directed by Nahas Hidayath and released in 2023. Anjana Abraham, a resident of Tripunithura, has filed a complaint with the Hill Palace police against the film's producers, Sophia Paul and James Paul.

As per the complaint, the producers of the RDX movie failed to hand over promised profit margins to stakeholders. Abraham claims to have invested Rs. 6 crore in the film's production, with assurances of full return on investment and 30% of total profits. However, she alleges that she received only her initial investment after repeated requests. The police have started an investigation into the incident. 

The film stars Babu Antony, Lal, Mahima Nambiar, Aima Sebastian, Mala Parvathy and Baiju Santhosh along with Shane Nigam, Antony Varghese and Neeraj Madhav. 

Earlier, the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) questioned actor-producer Soubin Shahir on Friday (June 14) in connection with a money laundering case involving the producers of the hit Malayalam movie 'Manjummel Boys.'

The complainant, Siraj Valiyathara Hameed, alleged that Parava Films had promised him a 40 percent share of the profits due to his significant investment in the movie. However, he claimed that the producers reneged on this promise. 

The case was registered on April 23 under the direction of the Ernakulam First Class Magistrate Court. The investor filed a complaint alleging that the producers of 'Manjummel Boys' failed to pay him the promised 40 percent share of the profits. Consequently, the court ordered the freezing of the producers' bank accounts.
