Chennai: Actress Radha who was featured in the film Sundara Travels told reporters on Sunday that a history sheeter lodged in Puzhal jail had called her and threatened to kill her. He also asked her to keep away from her lover Munivel, a producer, who is already married. The audiotape of the 2-minute plus conversation had been going viral on social media since Sunday morning.
Police said they are yet to receive a complaint from the actress, while the Sundara Travels star said she would lodge a complaint with the Chennai city commissioner on Monday.
In the audio, the man identifies himself as Vairam of Sriperumbadur and when confronted by Radha says he was facing so many cases. “You think you are bigger that me? You have acted in just 3 movies. I have so many cases against me. If you want I can come and meet you at your home in Virugambakkam,” he says.
Jail sources confirmed that Vairam was lodged in Puzhal jail under the provisions of Goondas act but added that they don’t know how he had access to a mobile phone to make calls and threaten the actress.
The caller tells Radha that if she informs Munivel that she got a call from Vairam, then he would immediately cut off his relationship with him. She received the call on the evening of August 18. Munivel is already married and there is a tussle going between his wife and Radha.
During the conversation Vairam says that he has not met Munivel’s wife. “But I got this case through my friend and I want you stay away from Munivel, otherwise you would face the consequences,” he says.
