It occurred during a verbal duel over the delay in building a wedding hall for the actor. Prosecutions were initiated against actor Santhanam and Shanmugasundram, a builder, by Valasaravakkam police in Chennai for attacking a verbal duel over the delay in building a wedding hall.
The police said Mr. Santhanam gave Mr. Shanmugasundaram a huge amount in advance for the construction of the wedding hall near Kundrathur. The project was delayed by the manufacturer. At one point, the project stopped. In anger, the actor questioned the builder and asked him to refund the money. As the builder did not force, the two had disagreed for a while.
Mr. Shanmugasundaram and Prem Anand, a BJP official, invited Mr. Santhanam and his manager, Ramesh, to the office of the first in Virugambakkam on Monday. A verbal duel has turned into a fight. The police said Mr. Shanumugasundaram struck Mr. Santhanam with a vase.
In retaliation, Mr. Santhanam and Mr. Ramesh attacked the other two, injuring Mr. Prem Anand in the process. Both sides lodged a complaint with the Valasaravakkam police, which filed complaints against both. Mr. Santhanam moved the Madras Supreme Court to seek early liaison in the case.
