Actor lodges complaint

The Nandambakkam police have lodged an FIR against director John Paulraj based on a complaint filed by actor Bobby Simha alleging that the director had completed a movie with a body double and visual effects despite him quitting the project.

According to official sources, the actor claimed that he acted in the movie Agni Devi directed by Paulraj for a few days after which he opted out. “He found the script to be different from the one he had initially accepted and the shooting was delayed. Hence he quit the movie,” said the officer. A petition has also been filed in a civil court in Coimbatore. The movie is supposed to be released on March 22. “We have filed an FIR with charges of criminal breach of trust, cheating, harming reputation and forged documents,” said an officer.
