According to the reports from various news channels, 2 of the crew members were detained by the police following complaints by journalists of alleged assault. The shooting of the movie is going on a brisk pace in Chennai as the movie has reached the final stage. With expectations mounting on the movie every single day, the Rajinikath starrer has come into a controversy now. As per reports, there has been a ruckus of some kind and several crew members attacked the two photo journalists present on the shooting spot who tried to get a couple of snaps of the proceedings.
However, the issue came to a close when Director Shankar himself made a visit to press council and expressed his regret over the issue and added that he was not aware of this unfortunate incident. He assured to them that these kind of instances would not happen in the future. Following his apology, the case that was filed in the Ice House police station has been withdrawn.
