India Cements, the owners of IPL’s Chennai Super Kings sent legal notice to their ‘sacked’ Ambassador Nayantara to get back their advance amount Rs.20 lakhs. Gurunath Meyyappan (Son of AVM Balasubramanyam), one of the partners and administrator of Chennai Super Kings told that the actress intentionally avoided the match and because of her unprofessional approach and behaviour the image of the team was shattered.
Gurunath said, “As said by Nayantara, we haven’t signed any contract with her, but a MoU has signed. According to the MoU, Rs.40 lakhs is the payment for Nayantara, out of which Rs.20 lakhs was paid to her as advance at the time of her first appearance during the inaugural launch. Now we all would like to put a full stop to this useless controversy and also willing to waive Rs.5 lakhs from this advance amount. We have already sent a legal notice to her for returning the remaining Rs.15 lakhs immediately to the company.”
Ruling out all the reasons pointed out by the actress for her absence, Gurunath said, “P Vasu, the director of Kuselan confirmed that she had discharged from the hospital within just 3 hours and return her home. But she didn’t inform anything well in advance to us. Now, Vijay is the solo ambassador to us and there is no idea of including any other actor or actress as ambassadors of CSK. We are very happy with him and he is the perfect person for our team and moves around the teammates like a pucca professional.”
