Tamil actor Vanitha Vijayakumar and her father, veteran Tamil actor Vijayakumar, have become embroiled in a feud over the family property.

Vanitha has claimed that the property belongs to her mother and that she is legally entitled to stay in the house. Vanitha is the eldest daughter of Vijayakumar and late actor Manjula.

Speaking to media persons in Chennai on Friday, Vanitha said, “I am staying at my mother's house. The office address of my production house is also there. No one has objected so far. We regularly give the house out for shooting. Out of nowhere, they seem to have gotten an offer from a producer to lend the house on contract. My dad asked me to vacate the house. Even after my mother passed away, I've been staying there, it's convenient for me as well. I stay with my daughter. My dad stopped the shooting and pressured me to vacate. I told him I'm willing to stop the shooting but it's not right to ask me to leave.”

Vanitha filed a petition with the civil court in the city on Monday, stating that her earnings as an actor in the '90s also went into the building of the house and that she should not be dispossessed of her property.

According to a report in the Times of India, Vijayakumar had lodged a complaint at the local police station in Maduravoyal as well as with the Commissioner's office on Friday. He has alleged that his daughter was refusing to vacate the house that he claims belongs to him.

Vanitha, however, has alleged that the inspector at the Maduravoyal police station had beaten her and her crew members on Thursday evening and thrown them out of the house.

In his complaint, Vijayakumar has reportedly stated that the property in Ashtalakshmi Nagar, Maduravoyal belongs to him. The newspaper reports that he rents out the house for shooting and that his daughter had promised to vacate within a week.
