The actress and the director became close during the filming of 'Vaazhthugal'. Vijayalakshmi has reportedly complained that the filmmaker has sexually exploited her and now he is declining to tie the knot.
"Vijayalakshmi and Seeman have been in relationship for three years. Since he refused to marry her and obviously ditched her, Vijayalakshmi has now approached the police to take legal action against Seeman," said a police officer.
Vijayalakshmi has acted in many movies and also in television mega-serials. She came with her counsels to the commissioner's office and submitted the petition at 2.30 pm.
The petition was immediately forwarded to the T Nagar deputy commissioner of police S Thirunavukarasu for further investigation.
It may be recalled that Vijaya Lakshmi, had attempted to commit suicide in 2006 after she was harassed by an assistant director of a reality show, which was hosted by her.
Later that year, she announced her marriage with a small-time Kannada actor Srujan Lokesh, but their relationship did not last long as they broke up in 2007.
According to the sources, Seeman is planning to get married to a Srilankan Tamil girl and the preparations are going on in full swing.
Earlier, Seeman has raised his voice for the uplift of Tamils in the island nation of Sri Lanka.
