A few days ago, Tamil film director Kalanjiam met with a serious accident near Ongole in Andhra Pradesh while he was travelling to Chennai after attending the wedding of actress Anjali’s cousin. He was accompanied by two of his associates.
It was reported that one of his friends died on the spot, while Kalanjiam and the other assistant sustained grievous injuries. The director was shifted to Apollo Hospital in Trichy from Ongole where he is now undergoing treatment.
However, his accident has led to mounting bills, and this is where Anjali has been dragged into the situation once again. A letter to her, read, “I’m in a dire position now, please return my money, Anjali.”
One may recall that Kalanjiam had filed a defamation case against Anjali a few months ago, while the actress had claimed that that the director and her aunt had cheated her. She even went into hiding following the fracas, and emerged making a public declaration that she would have nothing further to do with the director or her aunt and even refused to act in his film.
In light of this, the letter asking Anjali for money for treatment has shocked many. According to the open letter, sent by his friends, Kalanjiam is unable to recognise anyone who visits him and no one was willing to help him financially. So, they asked Anjali to return the money that Kalanjiam had once paid for one of her films.
When contacted, Anjali refused to comment as she was busy with her shoot, and also, as the matter is in court now, she was reluctant to discuss details of what was paid to her.
