“Duniya Vijay said something about my uncle, and I asked why do you want that? Immediately, he came back with around ten people and beat me and took me away. They took me in a car, and an hour later or so, I was in Rajarajeshwari Nagar and they stopped the car. They tried to get me to appear in a video and told me to say that fans assaulted me. There was Mani, Prasad, Duniya Vijay, and they were abusing. It was Duniya Vijay who made me appear in the video. He said that he will ruin my life”. said Maruthi to the reporters.
Those who aren’t aware, this is not the first time Duniya Vijay has been legally booked by the laws, the actor has had history in 2016 as well.
