Popular Tamil comedian Santhanam, a city based builder and two others were injured in Valasaravakkam on Monday, after they broke into a scuffle over a land deal, reports ToI.
According to reports, Santhanam had planned to build a mall in Kunrathur and assigned the job to Shanmugasundaram, a builder who operated out of an office in Valasaravakkam. The actor reportedly handed over a sum of money as advance to the builder once the location and design were finalised. However, the agreement was cancelled and the comedian wanted his money back.
Following this, the builder allegedly kept delaying the return of money. So, Santhanam and his manager Ramesh went to meet him at his office. But an argument began and soon there was exchange of blows. Two friends of the builder joined in and the fight continued. Neighbours then, reportedly pulled them apart.
All four of them were taken to a private hospital, treated as out-patients and discharged.
A complaint has now reportedly been launched against Santhanam at the jurisdictional police station by the builder.
