It came as a big shock to Tamil cinema fans on Saturday when a police complaint was filed against actor Vishnu Vishal. The complaint was lodged by a neighbor in Vishnu Vishal's apartment complex in Kotturpuram which stated that the actor had caused nuisance under the influence of alcohol. The individual further claimed that Vishnu Vishal had been rude to them, which the actor has now outright denied, while also providing a detailed explanation on the incident in a statement on his social media pages on Sunday. 

Vishnu Vishal's statement is as follows:

"Hi guys 

I rented an apartment in november.i was going to shoot among nearly 300 crew everyday. For the safety of my parents due to my exposure i decided to stay away from home. I hav a lot of work related meetings since im producing FIR.i workout inside my apartment with gym equipments and go for walk on my terrace.
Since the day i have come i am being accused by an apartment owner on the first floor. They have misbehaved with my staff,me and my guests who come to see me. It was my movie DOPS birthday. I had a small gettogether in my apartment . I have been off alcohol for my workout and body. But yes alcohol was served to the guests just like how any party has alcohol served and i donot see anything wrong with it. 

Our privacy was invaded. I very politely spoke to the police. The owner had no answers and he left using an abusive word and just like any human being i am bound to respond to that and i used some words back. Police knew i was not wrong so they left. As always being in media and being a police officers son its easy to accuse me and easy for people to believe. 
I hav been ridiculed for returning late from shoots, leaving early morning to shoots saying we make noises. I have been cornered for working out in my own apartment because it disturbs them. 

I did not give in or give up because i did not do anything thats illegal. But yesterday what was shown was totally to malign my image because i did not give in to their wrong demands. Even in the video you can only see me angry after that apartment owner used an abusive sure any normal human will not tolerate a bad word .Ask yourself will you?? 

I hope the media and public always dont judge things without knowing both sides of the story. 

I normally dont like to give too much explanation but terming me a `drunkard' and using the word 'koothadi' in a wrong way is a disgrace to my career and movie industry. I will not keep quiet. I can share details and bring proof about the behaviour of the apartment owner but he is my fathers age and i donot want to bring any damage to him and his family. I have spoken to his son yesterday and we have agreed on certain things. 

Last but not the least i decided long back to move away from this place,i was just waiting for my movie shoot to get over. This is not my weakness but i do not hav time to fight this unnecessary legal battle. I have lot of work to do for my fans and well wishers. 

Vishnu Vishal"

Apart from the statement, Vishnu Vishal also tweeted a picture of himself along with his friends, who he said were the team at the party that night. The actor had gathered the team of FIR at his house to celebrate the occasion of the film's director of photography Arul Vincent. Taking to his Twitter page, Arul Vincent wrote, "Hi for all of them who are making noise for the wrong reasons.....this is Arul Vincent DOP #FIR #firthemovie #vvgang of the movie FIR it was my birthday and so sweet of him @thevishnuvishal to throw a unplanned party involving only our core team  Thank you so much".
