Highlights

Director of Kannada film The Villain, Prem, has filed a complaint against those commenting inappropriately about him and the stars. With this, the actor is ready for a legal fight against the 'commentators'

The Villain, Kannada movie, is rushing towards breaching Rs 100 crore in just four days. It has amassed over Rs 60 crore. But director Prema has been hurt by some of the comments against his direction, almost demeaning the movie.

Veteran star Shivarajkumar's fans had expressed displeasure with respect to a scene where actor Sudeep is seen hitting the former. Many videos were made by people, demanding Prem to cut the scene. Some even questioned Prem's ability as a director.

Hurt by this, Prem also held a press meet and told the audience to look at the movie as a plot and not as competition between two stars.

He also challenged those, who insulted him, to direct at least two scenes and then criticise the movie.

Meanwhile, Prem has also filed a complaint against those commenting inappropriately about him and the stars. With this, the director is ready for a legal fight against the 'commentators'.

The complaint in this regard has been filed at Upparpet police station in Bengaluru. He handed over the copy of the complaint to Ravi D Chennannanavar, who is known as the Sigham cop of Karnataka. Prem has requested the police to take action against those found guilty.

"Let them speak about the movie, but bringing in personal factors and references is not tolerable," he said.

In one of the comments, a person had said that Prem shot in foreign countries as he wanted to take his wife there for a holiday. These kind of comments hurt him a lot and he is all set to take legal action to tackle them.
