Monice, Vijay's daughter with his first wife Nagaratna, stopped living with her father since Vijay allegedly asked her to falsely testify for him in a case. She had gone to her father's residence to collect some of her belongings, including her clothes and driver’s license, informs The News Minute. She has been admitted to a private hospital after sustaining injuries on her hand in the assault, Monica claimed.

As a a Mumbai Mirror report, Monica alleged that when she went to her father's house on Monday, Keerthi and others started beating her with some objects and also rammed her head against the wall. The report further said that as per an officer at Girinagar police station, a case of wrongful restraint, voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means, voluntarily causing hurt and intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace has been lodged against the five accused. He also said that Vijay has been asked to appear for inquiry.

While Vijay, speaking to the media said that false allegations had been made against him, Nagaratna categorically stated that her daughter's hands and legs were held and that she was beaten up.

The 'rebel' actor shot to fame when his fans began calling him Duniya Vijay after his Kannada film Duniya became a blockbuster over a decade ago. Some of Vijay's other films like Chanda, Junglee, Johny Mera Naam Preethi Mera Kaam and Jayammana Maga have also turned into box office hits since then. According to international magazine Forbes latest list of wealthy Indians in the celluloid world, Vijay's net worth is $21 million (Rs 151 crore).
