In September 2017, a complaint was lodged against Lavanya at the “South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce” by director Chandramouli. According to sources, Lavanya had excitedly signed the projects at once, but later, decided to quit the film after the pre-production of the Tamil version of 100% Love had been completed.
This had caused a delay in the further shooting of Chandramouli’s film. The shooting was to begin in September but as a result of her rather unclear resignation from the film, everything was delayed to October, said a reliable source.
