Chennai Police have registered a case against actor Vemal for allegedly assaulting Telugu-Kannada actor Abishek at a serviced apartment in Virugambakkam.
According to sources, Vemal and four of his friends booked a room in the apartment, where Abishek was also staying. “When both the actors were drinking 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,” they added.
Abishek suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital. Subsequently, he filed a complaint against Vemal. The police have registered a case and called Vemal for inquiry.
“The incident happened three days ago. Since Vemal is now out of station for shooting, he will appear before the police on his return to Chennai. The police are determined to take action against him since they have CCTV footage to prove the charges against the actor,” sources added.
