Amala Paul reacts to her ouster from VSP33 with hard-hitting, emotional statement
The 27-year-old lashed out at Chandaraa Arts, the film's producers, for removing her from the film, citing that she is not “production-friendly”
Amala Paul, who recently made headlines with the teaser of her upcoming film, Aadai, was ousted from Vijay Sethupathi's upcoming romantic drama, VSP 33, a couple of days back, and replaced by Megha Akash.
Now, the Ratchasan actor has released an official statement on Twitter, alleging that she got thrown out of VSP 33, unceremoniously. “I am writing this out of my great disappointment, as I have been thrown out of an ongoing movie,” the statement read.
Amala added that she is in Mumbai, purchasing clothes and working on the styling for her role as a musician in VSP 33, when she received a message from the producer Rathienavelu Kumar of Chandaraa Arts.
The 27-year-old lashed out at Chandaraa Arts, the film's producers, for removing her from the film, citing that she is not “production-friendly”. “This accusation has never been laid upon me during my decade-long career by any of my colleagues,” she said.
She further went on to add, “It’s just a patriarchal, egoistic, traditional mindset of Chandaraa Arts that this is happening right after the release of Aadai teaser and my image is being sabotaged with multiple baseless rumours that are mischievously being floated around in the industry."
Amala also said that Tamil Nadu deserves good cinema and that will only happen when this large set of traditional, patriarchal production houses change their mindset.
She concluded the statement by saying, “No harm is intended to you, Vijay Sethupathi. I am a huge fan and I was excitedly looking forward to working with you. This is a statement written out of my grave disappointment and to address the rumours that are being spread around by Chandaraa Productions about my unprofessional conduct.”
