A complaint has been filed against Tamannaah Bhatia with Chennai-based Nadigar Sangam, officially known as the South Indian Artistes' Association (SIAA). RK Suresh, the producer of Tamannaah's recently-released Tamil film Dharma Durai, has sought strict action for her "unprofessional behaviour."
In the complaint, Suresh has accused Tamannaah of meting out step-motherly treatment to Dharma Durai. He has reportedly raised the issue of Tamannaah's participation in the promotional event of her forthcoming movie Devi.
Suresh claims that the 26-year-old actress was not available to promote his movie Dharma Durai, which was released in August.
Tamannaah was in Chennai a few days ago to launch the audio of her much-awaited film Devi. The AL Vijay-directorial film has Sonu Sood and Prabhu Deva in the leads.
Suresh has demanded Nadigar Sangam to take a strict action against Tamannaah for failing to promote her own film. However, the actress is yet to respond to the allegations and it is not clear whether Nadigar Sangam has sought any explanation from her.
Generally, actors refuse to promote their films when they have issues with the makers. This is particularly relevant in financial disputes.
Coming to Dharma Durai, the film is written and directed by Seenu Ramaswamy of Neerparavai fame. The movie has Tamannaah, Aishwarya Rajesh and Srushti Dange in the female leads. It opened to fairly positive reviews and turned out to be an average grosser at the Tamil Nadu box office.
