Vijay Sethupathi is one of the if not the busiest leading actor in Indian cinema juggling projects in all South Indian languages and Hindi and Marathi in the North. Over the years he has also endeared himself to the audiences through his down to earth attitude earning the name Makkal Selvan (Treasured One of the People).

We already reported to you that one Maha Gandhi reportedly attacked Vijay Sethupathi and his manager inside the Bengaluru airport and a video of the incident also went viral on the internet. The superstar had stated that the attacker was in an inebriated condition and addressed him by calling out that they belonged to the same caste. The 'Master' actor had told the person that they could talk later after which he attacked and injured his manager before being subdued by the airport security.

The issue was reported to have been settled out of court but the alleged attacker Maha Gandhi later gave interviews pinning the blame on the other side. Now the person has filed a case in the Saidapet Court seeking criminal action on Vijay Sethupathi and his manager Johnson. In the petition he had stated that he was travelling to Mysore for a medical checkup on November 2nd when he met Vijay Sethpathi at the Bengaluru airport.

Maha Gandhi further added that since he was also an actor he tried to strike a conversation with Vijay Sethupathi praising him for his achievements especially him bagging the National Award for Best Supporting Actor for 'Super Deluxe'. The petitioner claimed that the famous actor not only was rude to him but also degraded his caste.

His manager Johnson then allegedly attacked him outside and hit him on the ear which has caused him to experience hearing problems which his doctors too have confirmed. He has maintained that he never attacked the actor or his aide. The petition has been admitted and is expected to come for hearing soon and has caused a huge sensaton in Kollywood.
