Chennai: While Vijay is one of the most prominent film personalities in Tamil Nadu, he isn’t stranger to political controversies. He has been at the receiving end of AIADMK’s wrath for his comments made at Bigil audio launch. Now, his father seems to be in troubled water as well.
A police complaint has been filed against filmmaker SA Chandrasekar, Vijay’s father, regarding non-payment of Rs 21 lakh to an NRI. The complaint was registered at the Vepery Police Commissioner’s Office. The complainant, film producer R Manimaran Pillai claimed that Chandrasekar had collected Rs 21 lakh from an NRI Brahmanantham Subramaniam in 2018. The amount was taken in exchange for the rights of the movie Traffic Ramasamy.
After taking the money, Chandrasekar changed his mind and informed Brahmanantham that he would hold the rights of the movie and promised to return the money later. It is alleged that the amount was never repaid and Manimaran, on behalf of Brahmanantham, met Chandrasekar on September 26.
During the meeting, Manimaran claimed that he was threatened. The complaint stated that Chandrasekar asked Brahmanantham to be safe in whichever country he lived and not to come to the city. Chandrasekhar was not available for comment.
Remember, SA Chandrasekhar, a veteran filmmaker, is currently directing a movie titled Capemaari. He chose to call the movie CM, which incurred the wrath of the ruling party. They alleged that it was derogatory to call CM as Capemaari and threatened to hold protests until he changes the title.
