Theeran Adhigaram Ondru Makers Apologise For Hurting Bawariya Tribes’ Sentiments
The recently released cop thriller, directed by H Vinoth, has courted controversy almost two weeks after its release. The team, including producer SR Prabhu, have clarified that they didn’t intend on hurting the sentiments of the Bawariya Tribes, as portrayed in the movie.
Members of the community alleged that they have been misrepresented in the film, that focuses on the story of a cop named Theeran (played Karthi) who catches criminals belonging to that tribe. The controversial scene refers to them as ‘kuttrapparambarai’ (hereditary criminals).
In a statement, the team said:
“Theeran Adhigaram Ondru is only based on the robbery incidents happened in various states of India. Our film has not portrayed any community in bad light. Further, robbery is not a profession among any community. But still, to people, who feel our film has hurt their sentiments, we convey our apologies and regrets.The forthcoming television telecast and official online streaming of Theeran Adhigaram Ondru will not have the book scene and dialogues mentioning denotified community (Kuttraparambarai).”

Financier Anbu Chezhian Seeks Anticipatory Bail In Ashok Kumar Suicide Case
Film financier Anbu Chezhian, who has been accused of allegedly harassing and abetting the suicide of Ashok Kumar, has reportedly sought anticipatory bail at the Madras High Court. According to The News Minute, the Chennai police booked the Madurai-based film financier for abetment to suicide (IPC Section 306), based on a complaint filed by Ashok’s cousin and director M Sasikumar.
In his anticipatory bail plea filed filed yesterday, he states:
“I respectfully submit that I am innocent and I am not guilty of any offence. I submit that I do not have anything to do with the said B Ashok Kumar directly or indirectly. I have been falsely implicated in the case for extraneous reasons to wriggle out of the defacto complainant civil liabilities.”
Her further adds that it is only Sasikumar who owes him money and not Ashok Kumar and that the suicide note is suspicious.
Ashok Kumar, director M Sasikumar’s associate and relative, was found dead in his apartment in Chennai. In his suicide note, Kumar alleged that he had been harassed by a loan shark and blamed Anbu Chezhian. He had stated in his suicide note:
“The biggest mistake we did was to borrow money from Anbuchezhiyan… A person who I consider higher than my own life, Sasi, I couldn’t bear the torture you are being subjected to. I am killing myself as I am not able to save you from them… I am leaving you amid cunning men, please forgive me for that.”
