Recently, a distributor named Selvakumar alleged that Kabali incurred him an unbearable loss. Selvakumar even threatened that suicide is the only option for him as Thanu is not helping him to overcome the losses.
Selvakumar said he pawned his wife's Mangalsuthra and convinced the money lenders. According to Selvakumar, the advertisements of Kabali suggest that the film is a big hit but in reality, he suffered a major loss.
But addressing this issue, Kalaipuli S Thanu met the media today and clarified that Selvakumar is not the official distributor of Kabali.
Thanu says Venugopal is original distributor of Kabali in South Arcot and Selvakumar is a mere imediator. Thanu also adds that he helped Venugopal by lending around 61 lakhs because of a few irregularities in his distribution management.
The Kabali producer signed off by saying Selvakumar is planning to blackmail and get money from Superstar Rajinikanth at the time of Kaala release. Thanu says Kabali has earned him a huge profit and until now, no other film broke the record of the Rajinikanth starrer in Chennai.
