The complaint was filed against him at the Commissioner of police office, Vepery. The complainant, a film producer, R Manimaran Pillai claimed that Chandrasekar had taken Rs 21 lakh from an NRI Brahmanantham Subramaniam in 2018. The amount was taken in exchange for the rights of the movie Traffic Ramasamy.
