Vijay fans have been trolling Sivakarthikeyan, accusing the actor of copying the ‘thalapathi’ in the recently released trailer of his upcoming film Seema Raja.
In the trailer, there is a scene where Sivakarthikeyan stands between two horses, which they said is akin to a similar scene in Vijay’s Deepavali release Mersal.
While some fans targeted Sivakarthikeyan for copying Vijay, few others pointed out that the Animal Welfare Board of India failed to notice this in the trailer.
Soon after the trailer was release, a tweet from actor Arun Vijay’s handle, hit out at ‘sudden stars’.
It said: “Every Tom, Dick, and Harry started playing mass heroes in Tamil cinema. Tamil audiences know who I’m talking about #SupportTrueTalent High time”.
Even as this tweeted caused furore, Arju Vijay came out with an explanation that his social media account was hacked by somene. He also deleted the controversial tweet.
In his explanation, he said, “To all my sincere followers, the account issue has been resolved promptly! I appreciate all of you for understanding the situation.For all these years that I’ve been in the industry, I know the value of hardwork and patience.”
He added: “No one’s greater or smaller. I’ve always respected talent and will continue to do so. I’ve never had and never need to demean a colleague.Kindly don’t divide the healthy brotherhood we actors share.”
