Sona withdraws case on SPB Charan by accepting written apology

The sordid high drama between Sona and SP Charan has come to an end on Tuesday night.

The actress has decided to withdraw all the cases against Charan, who has given a written apology!
Sona had earlier got a lot of media attention when she made a sensational disclosure that Charan tried to molest her at the Mankatha success party held at actor Vaibhav's house (In pic: Sona with good friends Venkat Prabhu & Premji).

Director Venkat Prabhu and his brother Premji tried their best to broker peace between Charan and Sona, but the actress was determined to get a public apology.

Meanwhile SP Charan got anticipatory bail, as Sona with the support of a woman organisation decided to picket his house. But powerful mutual friends worked overtime to thrash out an amicable settlement.

Sona later told the media : "I respect SPB sir a lot. The incident did hurt me and I had demanded a public apology, now to resolve the matter I agreed for a written apology from Charan, which was delivered to me on Tuesday evening. I'm withdrawing all the complaints and have decided to take a break by leaving the country."

Sona said, "The matter came to an end with the help of a mutual friend whose name I don't want to reveal." In a letter to a few newspapers, Sona said "The developments of the past few weeks have been unfortunate. SP Charan and I (Sona Heiden) have resolved our differences. Charan is and always has been a good friend. The issue between us was blown out of proportion. I wish him all the best for the future." "The incident hurt me a lot and I have decided to leave the country for a while. I want to take rest," Sona said. "Thanks for all the support rendered by the media in highlighting the issue," she added.

The countdown to Diwali 2011 has started in Kollywood. Diwali is on October 26, exactly a month from now.

The three Tamil films which have announced a Diwali release are- 7aum Arivu, Mayakkam Enna and Velayutham. Plus Shah Rukh Khan's RA. One is getting dubbed into Tamil and releasing along with its Hindi version. Simbu starer Osthi doesn't having any official confirmation yet, but it was said to release for Diwali.
Dont forget to vote for Which Movie wins in this Diwali Race?
Theatre booking has started in earnest, and the fight is to get the maximum number of screens in Tamil Nadu. It looks like Red Giants and Aascar Films producers of 7aum Arivu and Velayutham respectively are directly booking the theatres. Aum Films Mayakkam Enna is being distributed by Gemini Film Circuit.

The battle looks similar to 2007 Diwali when Vijay's Azhagiya Tamil Magan, Suriya's Vel and Dhanush's Polladhavan clashed. At that time, all the three were not so huge in terms of mass appeal.

Today, all the three heroes have a global reach, and it will be as trade says "the mother of all battles".
The market will heat up closer to release date, as all the three producers are keeping their marketing strategy under the wraps. This time, promotions will be huge as all of them want to attract the youth audiences. Everything depends on the number of screens and the opening.
