A Tamil film producer allegedly committed suicide at his house, with a suicide note recovered from the spot blaming a Madurai-based film financer for pushing him to take the extreme step, police said.


The alleged suicide of Ashok Kumar has shocked the industry, bringing back grim memories of the alleged suicide of well-known producer G Venkateswaran, brother of ace director Maniratnam.


A purported suicide note of Kumar, a relative of well-known actor-director Sasikumar, blamed a Madurai-based film financier for allegedly pushing him to the extreme step, police said.


Kumar reportedly accused the financier of charging exorbitant interest on some loans obtained by him, and harassing him over the same. Kumar was found hanging at his house in Chennai. -- PTI
