Ramgopal Varma tweeted about the stardom and style of Rajinikanth questioning how a man look like Rajinikanth became a super star. Fans and followers started reacting to RGV’s tweets and then he clarified that he was making a compliment about Rajinikanth by citing Thalaivar’s own comment about self.
Addressing the PWA campaign rally at Villivakkam on Friday evening, Vijayakanth, also known as ‘Captain’ declared he doesn’t care about anyone threatening him. By mentioning Rajinikanth’s name he said that ‘Vijayakanth is not afraid of anybody. Vijayakanth is afraid of only good people with good hearts. I will not withdraw like Rajinikanth. He will stay away from unnecessary fights.”
After Vijayakanth’s boasting and comment on Rajinikanth, the self proclaimed fans of Rajnikanth took the streets to burn Vijaykanth’s cutouts.
After Rajinikanth bashing, fans stated, “Thalaivar (Rajinikanth) has told us that we are free to vote for any candidate or any party of our choice, but to not associate his name or fame with that. In such a situation, Vijayakanth is dragging the Superstar to react.”
This fan fight is not a new incident when it comes to Tamil Nadu. All mainstream actors have their own team of fans or self proclaimed fans associations and this situation usually takes place when nearing any of their movie releases.
Rajinikanth’s political inclination varied according to different eras and he showed support to many parties. So his political stand also made some division in his fan following and Vijaykanth may be trying to use this space to lighten up the situation.
And this is not the first time that RGV has taken a dig at the superstar. Earlier, he had lashed out at superstars who have made donation of less than Rs 10 lakh for Chennai flood victims. Rajinikanth had earlier donated Rs 10 lakh for the Chief Minister Relief Fund and the younger stars donated way more than the superstar.
