CHENNAI: A day after he was discharged from the ICU at a private hospital in Tiruchy, controversial director Kalanjiyam’s aides urged actress Anjali to return the money she took from him as advance. Kalanjiyam, who has been in a tussle with Anjali for over a year over personal and professional reasons, was involved in a bad car crash just outside Ongole five days ago. “He was taken to a private hospital there and stabilized for head and hand injuries, but he required some surgery, which is why he was shifted to a multi-specialty hospital,” said one of his associates.

Subsequently, Kalanjiyam was driven to the Apollo Hospital in Tiruchy where he underwent surgery. “He is not able to recognise people. Only when people come close, he is able to recognise them based on the clothes. Full consciousness is also missing,” said his representative in Chennai. However, when Express contacted the hospital in Tiruchy, they said that he was in a general ward and the extent of his injuries were not “grievous”.

That aside, with mounting hospital bills, creditors have allegedly begun to ask for their loans back. “Everywhere we turn, people are asking for their money back. In this difficult time, we appeal to Anjali to return the money that she took as advance, as it will help in paying the medical bills,” he added.

In what has been a bad year for the Karungaali director, trouble began when Anjali - who has acted in hits such as Angaadi Theru and Engeyum Eppothum - skipped town and made a statement in Hyderabad that Kalanjiyam was harassing her. Kalanjiyam, for his part, accused her of walking out of his movie, after taking a hefty advance.
