Amala Paul clarified and hits back at the production house in a press release after she was removed from the upcoming Vijay Sethupathi starer bankrolled by Chandaraa Arts Production.
Amala said, 'The accusation that I am not production friendly has never been laid upon me during my decade-long career by any of my colleagues, peers, or acquaintances in the film fraternity. I can recall, rather vividly, I have in fact lent my support to all my production houses whenever such a situation arose.' She added, 'For example, for the movie Bhaskar Oru Rascal I had to let go of a part of my agreed salary and in fact, had to lend money to the producer when he couldn’t meet his financial obligations at the time of the movie’s release.When it comes to another upcoming release of mine ‘Adho Andha Paravai Poley’, my accommodation was in a humble village home. An alternative and a better accommodation in the city would have incurred loss of time and money to the already strict-budgeted movie.'
'I am in Bombay purchasing clothes and working on the styling for the upcoming movie bearing the cost of my travel and accommodation by myself, as Chandaraa production always mewls about their budget issues. Out of the blue the producer, Rathienavelu Kumar, sends me a message stating that he doesn't want me in the film as my demands and terms doesn't suit Chandaraa Arts’ project. Only to discover that he is referring to the demand of an accommodation in Ooty.' Amala added.
Amala Paul released a scathing letter stating that the producer Rathanavelu Kumar took the decision possibly after the release of 'Aadai" teaser. Aadai teaser is doing rounds on social media for the bold character played by Amala.
Amala further accused the production house as a patriarchal, egoistic and also it is the traditional mindset of Chandaraa Arts Production. She also said that her image is being sabotaged with multiple baseless rumours that are mischievously being floated around in the industry. She said that she is a huge fan of Vijay Sethupathi and no harm is intended to him and also excitedly looking forward to working with him in future.
