Film actor and TV producer of the Krishnadasi Serial ‘Kutty’ Padmini’s visit to the City Police Commissionerate in Egmore two days back created a flutter. But the actress remained tight lipped on the issue.
Kutty Padmini said, “I don’t want to say anything now. The police have advised me against it. I will discuss it with the media three or four days later.“
She had filed a complaint with the CoP against three of her former employees, Smera Srinivasan, Jambu and Vinod, accusing them of embezzlement to the tune of Rs 12 lakh. Smera had been with her for the last five years and the trio was looking after the accounts, sources said.
Recently, Kutty Padmini began to suspect them of misuse of the company’s money by falsifying records. “They exaggerated the figures and pocketed the money which was around 12 lakh,” the sources said. All this was done over a period of time.
The trio, who hailed from Kerala, stopped reporting for work and Padmini found that they had decamped with employee records and payment ledgers as well as copyright CDs belonging to her production house.
