Amala Paul slams producers, says she was thrown out of Vijay Sethupathi film

Amala Paul has lashed out at the producers of Vijay Sethupathi’s next film, tentatively titled #VSP33, Chandaraa Arts, for removing her from the film citing that she was not “production-friendly”.

In a statement, she said, “It’s just a patriarchal, egoistic, traditional mind-set of Chandaraa Arts Production  that this is happening right after the release of Aadai Teaser and my image is sabotaged with multiple baseless rumours that are mischievously being floated around in the industry.”

Amala has further written that she was sent a message by the producer stating that he doesn’t want her in the film while she was shopping for clothes and deciding on the styling for ‘VSP33’ while bearing the cost all by her herself.

She took to Twitter late on Wednesday to release a statement using the hashtag #TheTruth to address speculations that she had dropped out of the film citing date issues.

“I am writing out of my great disappointment, as I have been thrown out of an ongoing movie,” the statement read. It is speculated that the producers have roped in actor Megha Akash as her replacement in the film.

She added that she is in Mumbai, purchasing clothes and working on the styling for VSP33, when she received a message from the producer Rathienavelu Kumar of Chandaraa Arts. The actor claims that in the message, Kumar wrote that he doesn’t want her in the film as he couldn’t meet her demands and terms.

Amala said that she believes the producer was referring to her demand of an accomodation in Ooty, where the makers were planning to shoot the film. “Anyhow, he never bothered to call me before making his conclusions and hastily decided to throw me out of an ongoing project,” she said.

She went to add that the producer didn’t even bother to call her before taking his decision and hastily threw her out of the project.
