Now to make a bad situation worse, Vanitha Vijayakumar has revealed some dark family secrets at a recent press conference . Vanitha alleged that her father induced her mother Manjula into alcoholic to usurp her property and also alleged that her mother had an illicit relationship with others.

Vanitha during the recent press conference declaring,“I am forced to reveal family secrets, because they maligned me. My father started getting poisoned by my own family members who did not like me as I am a strong woman fighting against odds of my life on my own and also finding a lovable husband, despite a bad marriage previously,” she adds,

“I moved out my family at the age of 16 unable to bear the immense torture from my father and mother. They forced me to indulge in distressful activities.”

“My mother Manjula was made drunkard by my father to get hold of her property and now all the properties have been registered in the names of Muthukannu(Vijayakumar’s first wife) and actor Arun Vijay.”.

Recalling another incident, she said, “We moved on to US few years back when my father had no movie chances to act with. Initially my mother had moved to US and had made an illegal relationship with a doctor there for luxurious life. During that time Santha Kumar, brother of our former production manager who had been in love with my step sister Kavitha (Arun Vijay’s sister) had allegedly committed suicide by setting his house on fire. But the fact is my father converted the incident of killing into a case of suicide because they were indulging Kavitha in sexual activities. Ask Vijayakumar, he cannot deny the fact. “

While daughter Vanitha hurling fresh charges at him, the actors Vijayakumar and Manjula rubbishing them, at another press conference in the city.

“She is not my daughter anymore, she would feel the parent’s pain only when her children grow up. I am not sure why she is behaving like this. something has happened to her”, yelled angry vijayakumar.

He also defended his son Arun Vijay. “Vanitha claimed that Arun Vijay and a set of goons had threatened her against lodging any complaint. However, Arun was on a flight to America at that time,” he said.

Manjula while rubbishing the charges said, “Vanitha will get severe punishment from God as she accused about my husband, my son Arun Vijay and my son-in-law Hari  who are innocents”.

Well!! Can just a mere father-daughter squabble lead to fractures, arrests and such a public spat?
