A football player lodged a police complaint claiming that he was slapped by Tamil Superstar Suriya in Adyar on Monday evening. According to the police, U. Premkumar, a first division football player and his friend Lenin were heading from Broadway to a football ground in Adyar. Lenin on the bike and Praveen riding pillon hit a car going in front of them when it stopped suddenly, which made them lose control and slam into the rear end of the car and fly into the air upon impact.
The driver of the car, who was a woman, came out and began scolding them for rash driving, following which some people also reportedly came in support of the youth. Suriya, who was driving by, reportedly stopped by and intervened in the argument which further heated up the situation and resulted in the actor allegedly slapping the youth, asking why was he fighting with the women.
However, Suriya denied attacking the boys and had claimed that he saw the boys manhandling the women, which is when he tried to rescue her and intervened. The two boys lodged a complaint at Shastri Nagar police station.
