Karthi is a versatile actor who made his debut with director Ameer's 2007 film, 'Paruthiveeran'. Now, Karthi has completed 25 films with 'Japan'. All directors who worked with Karthi were present at the Japan audio launch last month except Ameer. When asked about it in an interview, Ameer revealed that he wasn't invited to the event.

The actor-director further stated that he isn't on good terms with Karthi and his brother Suriya. Then, he added that he and the Suriya family had a good relationship until producer KE Gnanavel Raja came between them. His interview clip went viral on the internet. Following this, Gnanavel Raja in a media interview said that they invited Ameer but he refused to come.

Paruthiveeran was produced and released under KE Gnanavel Raja's banner Studio Green. The producer in his interview went on to accuse Ameer of spending more money on the film than the quoted budget and added that he showed fake expenses to fraud money from him. However, actor-director Sasikumar came in support of Ameer and clarified that he gave money to Ameer for the final shooting of Paruthiveeran and Gnanavel Raja's allegations are false.

While it is true that Gnanavel Raja cleared Ameer's debts as his salary for directing Paruthiveeran, it is reported that Ameer spent money from his own pocket when the budget of the film exceeded his calculations. The director had also filed a case against Gnanavel Raja, Suriya and Karthi regarding this film. Now, Ameer has released a statement in response to Gnanavel Raja's recent accusations. A translation of his press release is here:

"This statement is for all the media friends who have been asking me to respond to the accusations, slanders spread against me by producer Gnanavel Raja and the outrageous words and untrue news about me a few days ago.

Due to the fact that the case related to “Paruthiveeran” is still pending in court, I am still not responding as per the instructions of the lawyer. Because of that, I don't even meet media friends.

There is no other reason for this. However, due to the fact that this issue is continuously going on social websites including "YOUTUBE", I would like to give some explanations.

There is no truth in even one of the comments made by Gnanavelraja regarding “Paruthiveeran” and my film journey. All are fabricated lies. This is a planned false propaganda with the intention of diminishing my dignity in society and with the intention of restricting my journey in the film industry.

No contract was signed between me and Gnanavelraja regarding the movie “Paruthiveeran”. Therefore, I have not breached a non-existing contract. He was the one who stopped the film halfway and disappeared without giving the amount for the shooting of the subsequent periods except the amount he gave for the first phase of the film.

After that, I continued to shoot the film through my company “TEAMWORK PRODUCTION HOUSE”. Also, I am amazed that my brothers, who are at the top of the film industry today, and all the technicians who have worked, who are completely aware of the entire shooting environment of "Paruthiveeran", are quiet about this issue.

In what environment was the movie “Parthiveeran” launched? What was the reason for starting it? The great people who knew the truth about this, gave me a vote and said 'release the film yourself'. They are simply watching all things that day and today too!

It is noteworthy that the people who were involved in the final panchayat of the movie "Paruthiveeran", those who settled it and those who signed the witness are still silent.

17 years ago, I was bound by the love of the one who held my hand and worked, today I have been placed as a criminal in society.

A few hours are enough for me to tell the facts, but I am keeping quiet because it will create a storm in many people's lives and turn the entire film industry upside down. Not for anything else!

While the truth is different, my family has suffered more from Gnanavel than the mental anguish I have suffered from the things he said about me. I can clearly state that I and my family will overcome all this and will not be a victim of his machinations.

Also, I would kindly request the elders who are guiding him to advise him, "Do not slander anyone like this in public."

Like the words of the Gita, "When injustice, iniquity, and injustice are rampant on earth, Kannan will incarnate." My heartfelt and immense thanks to my friend and producer Ganesh Raghu, who brought to light the facts from America, for these events happening in Tamil Nadu.!

Since the case and details related to "Paruthiveeran" happened 17 years ago, only a few people related to it know the truth, and certainly to all the journalists, who do not know me, who are not related to me, and the public who love me, who supported me with the hope that justice will be on my side. I am grateful. Thanks to them forever.!

My wish is that the issue of the "Paruthiveeran" film should not be repeated on social platforms including YouTube. As I am in the final stages of the film "Mayavalai", I kindly request media friends not to contact me regarding this issue. Thank you.!
