Producer hits back at Vijay Sethupathi

Close on the heels of actor Vijay Sethupathi threatening to take legal action producer Suresh of Studio 9 over the Vaanthakumaramn fiasco, the latter shot back saying that he was well within his right to advertise about the film. Speaking to News Today, Suresh, said, ‘It is my film. Who is he to tell me not to advertise? He has no legal standing and it is I who will start legal proceedings against him for having swindled me. I have all the paperwork, what does he have?’

On Thursday, Vijay Sethupathi claimed he had walked out of Vasanthakumaran ( produced by Studio 9) and that they cannot publish ads featuring him. At the Nadigar Sangam meeting, I had agreed to pay the advance money. They really cannot force me to act in this film. I will replay the advance, but I will not work with that producer (Suresh) anymore, said Vijay Sethupathi.
