Actor Vishal Detained by Police, High drama unfolded outside TNFPC

Movie actor-and-producer Vishal on was detained by police here for trying to break into the Tamil Nadu Film Producers Council (TNFPC) office which was locked by one faction of the members.
High drama unfolded outside the Tamil Film Producer’s Council (TFPC) on Thursday when its President Vishal was taken into preventive custody by Chennai police.
Vishal is the TNFPC President and he tried to break open the lock of the office in T Nagar’s Yogambal Street. The actor had a long standoff with the police, who he claimed were standing watch over the Producers’ Council office that had been locked by people who were not members of TFPC.
Calling this criminal trespassing, he accused the police of preventing office bearers of the Council to enter the property. He was then detained by the police and taken to the Teynampet Police Station.
“I have not done any mistake. They are not allowing me to go inside my office. If we ask questions they are arresting us. This is unbelievable,” said Vishal to the media.
The events took place a day after a group of 300 film producers locked TFPC’s offices in T Nagar and Anna Salai in Chennai demanding Vishal’s resignation. They alleged that Vishal was involved in criminal activities and demanded that he hand over the accounts of the Council.
