In a shocking statement, actor Amala Paul has revealed that she was thrown out of Vijay Sethupathi's upcoming Tamil film, dubbed as 'VSP33', because she was not "production-friendly". The statement came a day after makers said she opted out of the film citing date issues with her other projects.

“I am writing out of my great disappointment, as I have been thrown out of an ongoing movie, tentatively titled VSP33, citing a simple statement by the production that I am not production-friendly. This statement has put me in great introspection whether I have been supportive or unsupportive to the production houses in my career,” Amala said. She also wrote that such an accusation has never been laid upon her during her decade-long career by any of her colleagues, peers or acquaintances in the film fraternity. She said, "I can recall, rather vividly, I have in fact lent my support to all my production houses whenever such a situation arose."

Amala said she was in Mumbai shopping for clothes and styling her look for 'VSP33', when its producer Rathinavaelu Kumar sent her a message out of the blue stating he doesn't want her in the film as her demands and terms don't suit their project. She added that he didn't even bother to call her before taking his decision and hastily threw her out of the project. Actress Megha Akash has been taken as her replacement.
