After he realistically portrayed the miserable lives of poor youngsters in the swanky malls of T. Nagar in the guise of employment, director Vasantha Balan has been getting threatening phone calls from anonymous persons using public telephone booths.
Sources also say Vasantha Balan has lodged a complaint with the Chennai police commissioner with regards to that. ‘Angadi Theru’ which touched the conscience of the multitudes of shoppers visiting T Nagar malls every day is an eye opener for many.
Even the authorities have now taken the labour issues shown in the film seriously and are planning to take appropriate actions through Labour Welfare courts. When contacted Vasantha Bala refused to comment.
