In his words: ““I was embarrassed to say the least. Everybody we expected was present. We were all seated by 3pm, expecting the film to come on when the lights went out. When we approached the management of the cinema, they told us that their generator was faulty. This lingered on till 9pm. By then, the guests had left”

The filmmaker had allegedly taken this legal fight against the organization after their refusal to settle with him amicably.
