Chennai: Comedian Vadivelu is once again in the thick of high drama’ only this time it’s off screen.

The actor’s manager Shanker has lodged a complaint with the Virugambakkam police station stating 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 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 pattaasu and firecrackers 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 staff 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. I will not back off but take legal action and punish the guilty. People have begun to think that if they come up against me they can get instant fame. It’s a planned conspiracy to harm my career.”

This is yet another turn to the ongoing face off between Singamuthu and Vadivelu.
