Chennai Police on Thursday arrested actor and producer Vishal Krishna for allegedly trying to break into the locked office of the Tamil Nadu Film Producers’ Council. Previously a group of 300 producers who demanded Vishal's resignation, locked the office. Vishal being the council’s president, allegedly tried to break the lock at the T Nagar office around 11 am on Thursday. The police stopped the actor from entering the office, and arrested him when he persisted. Producers went against Vishal as he failed to keep his promise and he is blamed for being engaged in a lot of criminal activities. Many producers also demanded the fund reserved in the council as they are not able to use it in Vishal's reign.

However, after his arrests Vishal tweeted, "Police who were mute yesterday wen unauthorised ppl locked the doors & gates of TFPC have arrested me & my colleague today for no fault of ours,absolutely unbelievable. We will fight back,wil do everything to conduct Ilayaraja sir event & raise funds to help Producers in distress."
