Within a very short span of his career, actor Srinivasan has risen to the glare of Powerstar and has become a crowd favourite. However, at a personal level, he has had dubious distinctions, including the recent cheque fraudulent case that attracted media attention. Adding to this, the star has now been arrested by Chennai Crime Branch Police at his residence in Anna Nagar, based on a complaint filed against him.
According to the industrialist, who has filed the complaint, Powerstar had taken 50 lakh rupees from him, with a promise that he will fetch him 5 crores in return, from a financier. However, the industrialist claims that Powerstar has neither given him the 5 crore rupees, nor returned his 50 lakhs.
