Tamil film producer AR Jaffer Sadiq is alleged to be involved in a Rs 2000 crore drug racket, which was recently traced down by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). Jaffer, whose name has surfaced in the racket, is also the producer of Tamil filmmaker Ameer Sultan's Iraivan Miga Periyavan, is also reportedly his partner his restaurant business. Addressing the recent events, Ameer has now issued a press release expressing his shock and informed that he wasn't aware of Jaffer's involvement in the drug racket. 

In his self-explanatory statement, Ameer said, "Over the past couple of days, the news coming out about the producer of my film, Iraivan Miga Periyavan, has left me in shock. On the 22nd, during the the final schedule of Iraivan Miga Periyavan, the shooting was suddenly stopped. I came to know why the shooting was stopped and what was happening around me through the news in the media, but I don't know the truth to date. However, if the allegations in the news are true, the person should be condemned and punished." 

Ameer further stated, "The media is well aware about me that I'm opposed to making compromises with actors and producers in order to earn more money. In that light, I wish to state that I will not continue to work with anybody who is involved in illegal activities. Even now, I'm busy with the works of my film at my office where I often interact with journalists. Upon learning all the details, I will meet the people in the press and the media soon." 

Having debuted as a filmmaker in Mounam Pesiyadhe (2002) starring Suriya, Ameer went on to make critically-acclaimed films Raam (2005), Paruthiveeran (2007), and Aadhi Bhagavan (2013). He also appeared in a key role in Vetri Maaran's Vada Chennai (2018) and has been cast in the National Award-winning director's Vaadivaasal, which has Suriya playing the lead role.
