The Tamil Film  Producers' Council has asked actor Bobby Simha to withdraw the case he filed on John Paulraj aka JPR, the director of his latest film, Agni Devi. Upon failure to withdraw the case, the council has decided to take disciplinary action by imposing a ban on him. The decision was taken at a meeting involving both the parties and the producer council executives earlier today. 

The film, which was released last week, received a lukewarm response owing to the controversies surrounding it, and John approached the council to seek a solution to the issue. 

About the decision that was taken at the meeting, SS Durairaj, the General Secretary of TFPC, told us, "Bobby has been asked to withdraw the complaints he has filed on John Paulraj by the council. He has agreed to to it, and has two days in which to do so. If he fails to do this, we will be forced to take punitive action on him." 

In his complaint on John Paulraj, Bobby had alleged that the director completed the movie using a body double and VFX, without his consent. John Paulraj, the producer and director of the film, told us that following creative differences, Bobby walked out, leaving him to complete the film with available footage.
