Actor Vishal has trashed rumours doing the rounds that he had justified the use of force on students by the police.
The actor, in a video, said, ” Wrong information and rumours are being spread about me again. There have been rumours that suggest that I have justified the police’s use of force on students on the social networking page of a top IAS officer. Let me reiterate again. If you want to take revenge on me, this is not the time. You can use a different platform and a different time to take revenge on me. This is a sensitive issue. I had said something good would happen and as predicted, an ordinance allowing Jallikattu has been passed. Jallikattu will happen. But at this time, some people are spreading malicious rumours and attributing it to me. This is wrong.
“I am saddened by the fact that I have to keep clarifying again and again that I have not been making such statements. I am telling all those individuals who are indulging in this — this is not the platform. If you want to take revenge on me, come to another place. I have never ever said anything bad about the students or their protest. I have no other option but to put out this video message to clarify. Please do not fall prey to such rumours.”
