He expressed his anguish over the double standards of the industry with a tweet. But this didn’t go down well with Vijay’s fans and soon he was trolled for his step by Ilayathalapathy’s fans.
Siddharth tweeted: “Every single film is an equal challenge in today’s brutal cinema marketplace. If these special permissions to shoot are given to one, please give them to all producers. We are all the same. In the absence of equality and unity, god save us. #TamilCinema #Strike.”
Vijay’s fans on Twitter took it personally as they felt that he was attacking Ilayathapathy’s movie. They abused and trolled him and indicated that his words will have zero value.
Siddharth replied to the trollers in his own style and tweeted: “If you want to know what will not add 1 paisa value to Tamil Cinema, please read last 100 replies on my timeline. Filthy language, thevayillatha poison, sambandhamillatha kovam. Two sets of few jobless idiots spoiling everyone’s name and time. Paavam Vijay-Ajith.”
However, Tamil Nadu Producers’ Council had called for a complete shutdown of the industry from March 16 over its issues with the Digital Service Providers.
