In the call, Vairam is heard telling her, "You think you are bigger that me? You have acted in just 3 movies. I have so many cases against me. If you want I can come and meet you at your home in Virugambakkam."

He also threatened her against maintaining her relationship with a married producer, unless she wanted to "face the consequences".
