Actor Vishal has lodged a police complaint against a website, which he claimed had put up a report that gave the wrong impression that he had made certain objectionable statements, and some miscreants who had been issuing threats to him on his mobile.
The actor, in a complaint which he presented to the Chennai City Police Commissioner, said a website had put out a malicious and false report against him. He said the site had, in the report, claimed that he had issued statements against the state and its people. Vishal said that he had never made any statement as claimed by the site, which had alleged that he had reportedly called the people of Tamil Nadu as being lazy and that arrack shops would be sufficient for them.
The actor, while clarifying that the contents of the report were false, said, “I have great respect for the people of Tamil Nadu. I request you to initiate action against this site which has levelled baseless allegations against me. Such sites, through the fake news that they concoct, pave the way for division in the hearts of the people.”
The actor also requested the police to act against unknown miscreants who were issuing threats to him on his mobile.
