Vignesh Shivan clarifies on ‘liking’ controversial post on Leo

Vignesh Shivan has come up with a clarification on liking a post that spoke about an alleged rift between Leo director and Vijay after the release of the first single in the film, Naa Ready.

In the last few days, speculations have been rife about an alleged fall-out between the actor-director duo.

However, neither Lokesh nor Vijay has opened up on the rumours. Meanwhile, it is said that these speculations are just that, rumours.

Vignesh Shivan recently liked a post by a social media user that claimed that Lokesh Kanagaraj has stopped using the name of Vijay for the film’s promotions. He later removed his ‘like’.

Soon after Vignesh liked and removed the post, the user claimed that Vignesh Shivan knew the truth behind the incident and hence, reacted to the post.
Vignesh Shivan has shared a lengthy post on why he did the same. Taking to his social media handle, the director wrote, “Dear Vijay sir fans , Loki fans … sorry for the confusion without even seeing the msg , the context or the content of the video or the tweet , by jus seeing Loki’s interview I liked the video ! cos am a big fan of his works and his interviews and the way he speaks ! Am also eagerly awaiting for the grand release of Thalapathy vijay sir’s Leo (sic).”
He added, “I didn’t even see the video inside or read the tweet involved in both the cases ! Should have been careful ! And I express my apologies to all the good Thalapathy fans across the globe. So please stop wasting ur time in commenting more about this silly mistake and start celebrating LEO and all the good work that’s been put into it (sic).”
