Star hero ordered to pay a huge fine after delaying a project

South Indian star hero, Simbu is one of the most followed actors in Tamil Nadu, thanks to his unique mannerisms and daring attitude. The star hero was involved in quite a few controversies in his prolonged career. His love affair with senior heroine, Nayanthara is just one of the many controversies in which he was involved.

On a contemporary note, Simbu is involved in a big financial dispute after receiving 50 lakhs in advance for a project in 2013 and stalling the project. Allegedly, a production house named Fashion paid the above-said amount as the advance for the actor, but could not get the project on floors as Simbu was citing one reason or the other.

With no other option left, the producers approached the High Court. After a detailed investigation, the court ordered the actor to play a total of 85 lakhs(Principle+interest) to the production house. The court gave the actor 4 weeks time period to pay the due amount or his phone, valuables, and the house will be seized and auctioned to pool in funds.
