The controversy surrounding Cheran's daughter Damini, has become a hot topic of discussion in Kollywood.  Cheran broke down on Sunday at a press meet while explaining about the irony of life.

A emotionally charged Cheran said :  “I have always stood for love, beyond caste and religion, but now my daughter is trapped and I am being made out to be a villain.”

He said that Damini’s boyfriend Chandru had duped many girls from rich families before, in the name of love and he did not have a proper job or the means to support his daughter

Cheran  with wife Selvarani by his side, said he would not change his stand against his daughter’s relationship with Chandru.  Asked Cheran : “How can I send my daughter with a person who doesn’t value or respect women?”

However the director’s tears apparently did not move the central crime branch police, who registered FIRs against Cheran and Chandru based on complaints filed by Damini. Police booked Chandru under Information Technology Act for harassing her online and charged Cheran under section 506 for criminal intimidation.
