According to latest reports families of two pilots that died in a plane crash filed documents saying that Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman are partly responsible for a plane crash in which Alan Purwin and Carlos Berl died and Jimmy Lee Garland, third pilot, no longer has feeling in his lower body.

He added that the film, about real-life pilot Barry Seal, recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency in the 1980s to infiltrate the Pablo Escobar drug cartel, was "the most risky project I've ever encountered". The suite also states that Cruise is an experienced enough pilot that he should have flown the plane that crashed.

Three of the pilots working on the movie American Made were in a twin-engine Piper Smith Aerostar 600 when it went down in the mountains in September 2015.

In the lawsuit, Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman are not mentioned as suspects, but they are considered inattentive and not careful because they had given flight permission in risky conditions.

"They were incredible about safety from everything that I saw", 33 year old Olsen said.

"DL [Doug Liman] and TC [Tom Cruise] [are] adding entire scenes and aerial shots on the fly".

PM Modi was received at airport by Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and other dignitaries. She said that more than 33,000 weavers have benefited by MUDRA scheme, receiving loans worth more than 170 crore rupees.

In listing all the ways the crash could have been avoided, the families argue that Cruise himself could have piloted the plane, calling him "a well-qualified pilot very familiar with the Aerostar and the routing".

The film is produced by Imagine Entertainment's Academy Award®-winning producer Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind), Cross Creek Pictures' Brian Oliver (Black Swan) and Tyler Thompson (Everest), Quadrant Pictures' Doug Davison (The Departed), and Kim Roth (Inside Man). "In the last 48 hours this has become the most insane s- I've ever dealt with", the letter read, according to the lawsuit.

The families described the fatal flight as "a spontaneous, rushed, ad hoc mission over unfamiliar terrain, in unfamiliar weather, from a small jungle airstrip".

The suit, which was filed in April of 2016, is one of many connected to American Made and the crash. Back when the accident occurred, the film's insurance company, Great American was expected to cover the incident.

The film "American Made" is about a former Trans World Airlines (TWA) pilot Barry Seal, who worked as a drug smuggler for the Medellin cartel and became the informer of the USA anti-drug department to avoid prison.
