Chennai: The city police have registered a case against actor Vemal for assaulting another actor at Virugambakkam on 9 March.
According to sources, actor Abishek, (33) who works in Telugu movies, came to the city for the shoot of a film. He was staying in a serviced apartment at Baskar Colony, Virugambakkam.
He was accompanied by Vemal and four of his friends as well.
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.
Sources said Vemal could not take it as he was a senior actor compared to Abishek. Both the actors were in inebriated condition and got into a fight soon. Abishek suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital.
Subsequently, he filed a complaint against Vemal. The actor shot to fame with films such as Kalavani, Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga and Vaagai Sooda Vaa.
