STR’s movie Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven is gearing up for release on February 1, Simbu has found himself in another controversy. As you all know well a few days ago, the actor shared a video on social media in which he requested his fans not to pour milk over his cutouts. The statement received a mixed response. While many appreciated his efforts to end the dangerous Kollywood tradition, many trolled Simbu saying that he doesn’t have such a big fan following and who will celebrate his films in such a manner.
This led Simbu to come up with another video. In the new one, he went back on his earlier statements and asked his fans to celebrate the release of Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven in a grand manner and pour milk from large containers. This led to serious criticism from the audience and the actor was slammed for misleading his fans. Tamil Nadu Milk Dealers Association filed a complaint against in Police Commissioner office for encouraging his fans to waste milk.
Now, Simbu has come up with new statements regarding his contradicting requests to his fans. Speaking to media, the actor said he never wanted his fans to pour milk over his cutouts. STR said that he issued the first statement to bring about a change in the society but it didn’t reach the people properly. An entertainment website quoted him as saying, “Negative statements will become viral easily and that’s why I said so.”
He said, “I didn’t actually ask my fans to do milk abhishekam for me. What I actually meant was to provide containers of milk to people who are in desperate need of it.”
