Simultaneously, the release of Ameer's much-anticipated film, 'Kadavul Periyavan,' has been halted due to the unfolding situation.

Addressing the matter, Ameer stated, "I am unaware of the circumstances surrounding the halt in shooting; I learned about it through the media. Let me clarify that I will not continue working with anyone involved in illegal activities," he had affirmed earlier.

However, certain individuals on social media have drawn attention to photographs depicting Ameer and Zafar together, alongside Ameer's restaurant, insinuating, "The two share a close bond. How could Ameer remain oblivious to Zafar's actions?"

Responding to these allegations, Ameer released a video statement, asserting, "I have already clarified my stance regarding producer Zafar Sadiq of 'Kadavul Periyavan.' Nevertheless, it is distressing to witness some individuals, including my well-wishers, associating me with criminal activities on social media and in the press.

"I wish to make one thing unequivocally clear to all. I adhere to a religion that unequivocally prohibits alcohol and usury. By implicating me in such crimes, not only do you besmirch my reputation, but you also cause anguish to my family.

"I am fully cooperating with the police and department officials in their investigation. I am available for questioning whenever required. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to those who have supported me during this trying period. Remember, God is the ultimate judge," he concluded, addressing the circulating rumors.
