Vishnu Vishal has said that he doesn’t have to stoop to levels where he needs to build his life by cheating others.
“By Gods grace and goodwill of my fans, I have done a decent amount of work to earn and make a living out of movies.. I do not need to stoop to levels where I need to build my life by cheating anyone”, tweeted Vishnu.
He was reacting to Soori’s complaint against a film producer and Vishal’s father for allegedly cheating him money to the tune of crores of rupees
Soori, in his complaint stated that he had signed a movie titled, Veera Dheera Sooran, with actor Vishnu Vishal playing lead in 2015. The movie had released the following year.
Subsequently, when Soori asked for the salary which was long pending, the producer Anbuvel Rajan, reportedly declined to pay an amount of Rs 40 lakhs.
Instead of a monetary payment, Rajan and a realtor Ramesh (Vishnu Vishal’s father and a former police officer) proposed to give him land on the city outskirts for which the duo asked him to pay an amount of Rs 2.70 crore.
Even after Soori paid the amount, the duo are yet to register any land in his name, he said. Soon after the issue came to light, Vishnu Vishal said, “Obviously vested interests are working. Infact Mr. Suri has to refund Vishnu Vishal Studioz an advance paid to him in 2017 for a film kavarimaan parambarai which eventually was dropped.
“We have complete faith in law and judiciary system. It may not be appropriate to elaborate further at this point in time and we will strictly go by what Law permits,” he added.
