It is a known fact that the king of controversy in Tamil cinema, actor Simbu is at it again with the help of a certain 'beep song' which has landed him in the soup. As if the ongoing chain of events isn't problematic enough, a group of Simbu fans have tried their hand at self-immolation.
It is said that a couple of teenagers threatened to take their own life in front of the Vaalu actor's home, if the charges pending against Simbu isn't cleared immediately.
If not for the timely action taken by cops, things could've gone from bad to worse. The self-confessed ardent fans of Simbu have been detained by the police department.
Equivalent acts of foolishness is said to have taken place in other parts of Tamil Nadu, including Vellore. It is to be noted that a similar incident occurred when a fan of Simbu tried to commit suicide over the delay of the actor's film Vaalu, earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Simbu approached the High Court in an attempt to acquire an anticipatory bail. He has claimed that police visited his home to arrest him when he was away.
Police has divulged that "legal action" will be taken against Simbu and Anirudh if they fail to appear in front of the Race Course police station on January 2nd, as per the second summon sent across to the actor-musician duo.
