Simbu has finally appeared before the Coimbatore police in connection with "beep song" controversy. The actor was interrogated Monday morning.
After appearing before the cops, Simbu told mediapersons he was not in a position to talk much about the "beep song" controversy, The News Minute reports. The actor added he has answered all the questions and reiterated he has done no wrong.
It has to be noted that Anirudh Ravichander, the other person involved in the controversy, had appeared before the Coimbatore cops to give his statement on the issue in January.
Simbu and Anirudh Ravichander had landed in the "beep song" controversy a few months ago after a song apparently written, crooned and composed by them leaked on Internet. The number had gone viral, and drawn huge criticism for the verbal abuse used in the lyrics.
As per Simbu, it was a private song, restricted to their gang of friends and not meant for public consumption. But some miscreant leaked the number, thereby landing the duo in trouble.
After the controversy broke, several women's organisations protested against Simbu and Anirudh Ravichander, and subsequently, multiple cases were filed against them under various sections of the IPC (Indian Penal Code).
Fearing arrest, Simbu, who claimed Anirudh had nothing to do with the song, approached the Madras High Court seeking anticipatory bail. The court, after initially rejecting his plea, directed the actor to appear before the Coimbatore police.
Meanwhile, Simbu suffered injuries on his face recently while performing an action sequence in Gautham Menon's "Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada." He has been advised rest by doctors for a few weeks.
The shooting of "Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada" is almost complete, and the movie will hit the screens this summer.
