Actor Vishal, who is the general secretary of Nadigar Sangam (actors' union), had asked the actress to come forward with evidence. He had even criticised her and said she picked her targets at random. Karthi, the treasurer of the association, also addressed the actress' accusations and called them baseless, reported India Today.
