Simbu, who faces arrest in the ‘beep’ song controversy, has appealed to his fans and others not to drag actor Sivakarthikeyan’s name in the controversy.
The song, with its vulgarish lyrics, faces huge opposition from women’s right organizations. Women have also been holding protest demonstrations outside Simbu’s T. Nagar residence in Chennai by burning his effigies and beating his posters with chappals.
Coimbatore Police has issued second set of summons to Simbu (for singing the song) and Anirudh Ravichander (for composing music for the song) to appear before them on 02nd January.
Simbu had earlier regretted that someone had purposely leaked the song on the Internet even before it could be edited and finalized. Chennai Police’s Cyber Crime Branch has aksed YouTube to clarify who leaked the song on the Net.
When YouTube responds to the police, it would be revealed as to who leaked the song. In the meantime, news has been spreading fast on social networking sites blaming actor Sivakarthikeyan for leaking the ‘beep’ song on the Net. Following this, Twitter’s administrators, who manage Simbu’s Twitter account, have issued an explanation.
“Sivakarthikeyan has nothing to do with the ‘beep’ song controversy; a few persons have been purposely dragging his name in the issue. There is no truth in it. I’m ready to face legal proceedings in the case as I haven’t disappeared. I believe in Almighty who would always take good care of me,” Simbu’s tweet said.
