The Metropolitan Court located in Saidapet, Chennai has issued summons to actor Vijay Sethupathi and his manager Johnson following a complaint filed by a Maha Gandhi, who alleged that he was attacked by the actor's team. The issue received public attention when a video of a man trying to attack the actor went viral.

It's stated that the fight started when the actor was returning from Delhi after receiving the National Award and spoke sarcastically when Maha Gandhi tried to congratulate him. Now Maha Gandi has filled a defamation complaint against the actor and his team claiming that he was attacked by Johnson outside of the Bangalore Airport.

Now the IX Metropolitan Magistrate Court has ordered the issuance of summons to the actor and his manager, and they have been ordered to appear before the court in January.
