Ashok Kumar who is the cousin of Sasikumar and manager of Company Productions who was deeply harassed by financier Anbu Chezhian over Kandhu vatti (unorganized call money market charging high-interest rates) committed suicide last midnight. He before the death has alleged in a letter that he has committed this suicide due to sever harassment of Anbu Chezhian.
Director Suseenthiran while mentioning about this on his official Twitter page has mentioned, “Greetings to all. Ashok brother’s death should be the last death in the Tamil cinema industry. I am revealing the shocking news to Ajith’s fans. During the Naan Kadavul days, Ajith had also the same suicidal mentality of Ashok brother. Majority of the producer and directors including Lingusamy sir and Gautham Menon sir are deeply affected because of Anbu Chezhian. Even music composer Imman threatened indirectly asking him to compose music for a particular film. I am hereby making a humble request to Central Government and Income Tax department. Half of the money of Tamil Nadu people will be with Anbu. Kindly raid his premises.”
