A case has been registered against Tamil actor Vemal for allegedly assaulting a Kannada actor at Virugambakkam on 9th March. The sources say that actor Abishek who works in Telugu movies came to the city for the shoot of a movie. He was staying in a serviced apartment at Baskar Colony, Virugambakkam. He was accompanied by Vemal and four of his friends. At 1.30 am, while Abishek was speaking over the phone, Vemal had asked him something to which he did not give a proper reply. Angered by this, both got into an argument which led to a fistfight.
Vemal is a well-known face for Kollywood audiences as he has been the part of few movies like Pasanga, Kalavani, Vaagai Sooda Va and Kalalappu. He started his career in the film industry in small nondescript roles in several low budget movies. Currently, he is busy in upcoming movie Kanni Raasi, in which Varalaxmi Sarathkumar is playing the female lead.
