Ajith Kumar, who is arguably the biggest name in Tamil cinema, recently sent out a message to his fans through his legal team. In the strongly-worded message, ‘Thala’ stressed that there are a lot of people who misuse his name on the social and apologised to anyone who had been insulted by such self-proclaimed fans. He went on to add that he does not endorse any brand or political party in any way whatsoever.
“Our client does not have any official page or account on any social media platforms, especially on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram. However, there are a few unauthorized self-proclaimed individuals, groups and associations, passing off their personal views and opinions on social and political issues under the guise and likeness of our client, through the unauthorized use of our client’s name and image.
Such persons misusing our client’s name have also been trolling members of the film fraternity, journalists, critics and other individuals. While it is important to identify such miscreants to be held accountable, our client unconditionally apologizes for any hurt or harm that this may have caused knowingly or unknowingly,” read the press release.
Well, that is quite a nice gesture on Ajith’s part and could go a long way in curbing the menace of trolling.
On a related note, Ajith will soon be seen in ‘Vivegam’. A spy-thriller, it has been directed by Siva and features ‘Thala’ in a new avatar. Besides Ajith, the film also features Kajal Aggaewal and Akshara Haasan in the lead.
