Namitha, the hot actress of Tamil Cinema, has made a complaint with Nadigar Sangam about producer-director Thiru alias Thirunavukkarasu yesterday for torturing her to get her call sheet for his film. Thiru started a film titled Azhagan Ponnu in 2006 with Namitha playing the lead role. He paid her Rs.17 lakhs as advance. Kamaraj was the director at that time.
After 5 days of shoot, the producer dismissed Kamaraj and took over charge as director. Namitha was hesitatant to act under his direction. But Thiru convinced the actress and she agreed to continue working in the film. In 2006 December, Thiru restarted the movie and the shooting was fixed to take place at Kodaikanal.
Namitha came on time to the set but the director came very late. Namitha became furious and blasted the director in front of the unit members and walked out of the sets. After this incident, there was no time for Namitha to rethink about the film Azhagana Ponnu as she had many other films on hand to shoot for.
Thiru tried his best to get Namitha's call sheets and restart the movie. Namitha then made a complaint with Nadigar Sangam about Thiru and stating that he had'tortured' her and that he frequently visiting her house and threatened her to get the dates. Thiru also made a complaint about Namitha with Producer's Council that the actress didn't co-operate with him as agreed and tried to cheat him
