Chennai: Expressing regrets for his remarks against the office-bearers of the Tamil Film Producers Council, actor-producer Vishal Krishna on Wednesday filed an affidavit in the Madras high court, requesting to revoke his temporary suspension from the council. Justice K.Kalyanasundaram, before whom Vishal filed the affidavit, posted to January 6, further hearing of the suit filed by Vishal, assailing the decision of the council in suspending his membership for three months.

 In his affidavit, Vishal submitted that on January 2, when the case came up for hearing, senior counsel appearing for the council submitted that even now if Vishal conveys his regrets for making such remarks, the entire issue could be settled. Pursuant to the same, this court has directed his counsel to obtain instructions and report back to the court. Hence, as advised by his counsel, he was filing the present affidavit, he added.

 

 He said the entire controversy arose out of his interview published in Tamil weekly magazine “Ananda Vikadan” in the issue dated August 17, 2016, regarding the functioning of the council. He had only expressed his personal views, may be in a slightly strong manner but without any ulterior motive or intention to hurt anyone or create any controversy and ill-will in the council. In fact, in the same interview itself, he had clarified that he had nothing personal against any of the elected office-bearers but still some of individuals felt that he had made a personal attack, he added.

 

 He said, “In order to avoid further confrontation and for the betterment of the council and in the interest of maintaining better relationship between various interlinked associations in the industry, I have filed the present affidavit. I am a hardworking, honest, responsible and law abiding citizen with great respect for the law, courts and rules and regulations governing various bodies. I state that I convey my regrets to all concerned, if any of my statements in the above referred interview may have hurt anyone, because that was not my intention, and I undertake to abide by the rules and regulations governing the council, as always. I request that my temporary suspension may be revoked and that my normal membership may be restored”, he added.
