The Virugambakkam police registered a case against actor Singamuthu, the former co artist and todays arch rival of Vadivelu, on a complaint lodged by Vadivelu's manager. In his complaint, Shankar, the comedian's manager stated threats and harassment from producer Kannan and a group of around fifty people who had allegedly threatened Vadivelu upon reaching his office drunk and used foul language against him.
According to producer Kannan who has also lodged a complaint with the police commissioner, he was celebrating at a birthday function at his home with actor Singamuthu, Anandraj and others. The office bearers of Vadivelu on the opposite side of the street got disturbed by the sounds of fire crackers and came to threaten them. According to him six sovereigns of gold was taken away from his father-in -law.
Retaliating to these accusations, Vadivelu has said, "I was not there when all these incidents took place. I have never seen Kannan but heard he lives opposite my office. Singamuthu is his friend. On 7th they were using a 10000 vala fire cracker in front of my office premises after which a complaint was lodged against them."
"On 9th Singamuthu who was visiting Kannan once again sat in a car while Kannan came armed with weapons and threatened my staffs for filing the complaints. I heard about threats to burn my office if I don"t back off in my proceedings against Singamuthu. Murder threats were issued to my manager. People have begun to think that if they come up against me they can easily get a place in headlines. It"s a planned conspiracy to harm my career..."
At then same time Singamuthu blames that Vadivelu unnecessarily is doubting him and lodged police complaint. "I know, his (Vadivelu) only aim is to take me into police custody...", Singamuthu said.
