In the video, Vijay reportedly claimed to be the 'real victim' and said he will file a defamation case against the complainant. He reportedly said in his video, "I haven't done anything wrong. I'm the victim in this. The so-called law of this country protects her and she is at ease while I'm the one who is suffering."

The actor-producer reportedly shared, "I will file defamation and a counter-case. It won't be a small case.  won't let her get away that easily. I can share all the proof with me but I won't because I don't want to cause damage to her family. I'm answerable only to my wife, mother, sister and friends. And I don't  want this to end with a piece of small news saying, 'Vijay Babu found not guilty'."

He further added, "I haven't chatted with her between 2018 and 2021. She came for an audition and got her role. All these talks about casting couch and all.. it is I who is suffering. She started sending messages saying she was depressed. From  December till March. I have all her messages, and over 400 screenshots  Whatever allegations she may have, rape or consensual, I have all on record."

According to reports, producer Sandra Thomas had also accused Vijay of sexual assault in 2017. Reportedly, he did a Facebook live to dismiss the charges.
