Mani Ratnam shared his thoughts on fan wars between Thalapathy Vijay and ajith kumar on social media in a recent interview. The filmmaker, in a panel discussion with other tamil directors, was weighing in the diminishing distance between viewers and creators owing to social media platforms when he addressed the fans wars. The ponniyin selvan helmer said that these debates are like those arguments you have on the roadside. trisha, who has worked with Vijay and ajith, reacted to his thoughts.
The dil Se director was seated for a round table discussion with Galatta Plus when the subject on social media popped up. “Social media has the privilege of anonymity so people are just spitting venom. It is only negativity that coming from there. Now, you told me that in Thirunelveli and Nagercoil people are not talking about the box office collection of the film but discussing if the film is good or not, now that you have told me. I am very happy about it,” he said, addressing Karnan and Maamannan director Mari Selvaraj.
“So a debate on social media is like a random roadside argument. If it is a serious platform where it is being debated, then you can have your opinion. But this (debate that) ‘I like ajith, I like Vijay’ doesn’t make any sense,” the filmmaker added.
Snippets of this were shared widely on social media and trisha krishnan reacted to two of them. While she did not comment on the subject, the actress liked two posts featuring this portion of the discussion.
