Santhanam and three others have been injured.
Santhanam has reportedly been injured after getting into a fight with a Chennai-based builder on Monday, October 9. They had a heated argument over a financial issue before exchanging blows. The builder along with two other have also been injured, say reports.
Police sources have told the Times of India that Santhanam had paid an advance to the builder named Shanmugasundaram for the construction of a mall in Kundrathur in Chennai.
After locking in the design, the actor went on to cancel the deal and demanded that the builder return the advance.
Shanmugasundaram, who has his office in Valasaravakkam, did not show any sign of returning the money despite Santhanam's repeated requests.
On Monday, Santhanam with his manager Ramesh visited the builder's office demanding the return of his money.
They had heated verbal exchanges that culminated in fisticuffs. Their manager and the builder's friend Amarnath, who was in the premises, also joined the fight.
On hearing commotion, a few people nearby entered the office and separated the four men. Later, the four were treated at a nearby hospital and discharged.
Shanmugasundaram subsequently filed a complaint against the actor with the Valasaravakkm police station.
On the professional front, Santhanam is gearing up for the release of his next venture Server Sundaram, which is directed by Anand Balki.
It has Vaibhavi Shandilya as the female lead, with Mayilsamy, Radha Ravi and Venkatesh Bhat also in the cast.
KS Manikandan's Oodi Oodi Uzhaikanum, Sethuraman's Sakka Podu Podu Raja and Selvaraghavan's Mannavan Vanthanadi are his next three movies.
