Vemal and three of his friends have allegedly attacked Telugu- Kannada actor Abishek under the influence of alcohol at a hotel in Chennai.
All of them, including Abishek, were staying at a guest house near Virugambakkam. It seems that war of words occurred between Vemal and Abishek after an argument broke out, which led to a brawl.
Sources said Vemal could not take it as he was a senior actor compared to Abishek. Both the actors were in inebriated condition and got into a fight soon. Abishek suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital.
It is said that the police has verified CCTV footage of the entire incident.
“On Saturday, both the actors were drinking along with their friends. Abishek was talking over the phone when Vemal allegedly asked him something and the former did not respond. Angered by this, the duo got into an argument which led to a fistfight,” said a police officer.
Vemal is a popular actor in the Kollywood industry and has acted in films such as Pasanga, Kalavani, Vaagai Sooda Va and Kalakalappu.
