Vijay in 'Theri'.

While reviewing the recently released ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ a noted journalist said that she walked out of the Shah Rukh Khan starrer just the same way she had left a screening of Vijay’s ‘Sura’ many years ago. This dig at ‘Thalapathy’ created quite a buzz on the social media and soon some self-proclaimed Vijay fans began insulting the lady in the worst ways possible. In fact, some of them even went to the extent of of threatening her well-being.

Now, Vijay has broken his silence on the matter. He recently issued a statement and said that everyone has the right to criticise his films. He went on to add that no one should ever humiliate a lady for merely doing her job.

“I have the utmost respect for woman in the society. There is freedom of opinion to criticize anyone’s film by anyone in this country. ln my opinion, in any circumstances, no one should reveal contemptuous or disgraceful comments on the woman. Everyone should respect womanhood. I urge you not to post anything in internet with the intent to harm or offend a woman,” said the actor.

We are really happy that Vijay has taken such a firm statement on the matter and hope that his self-proclaimed fans  stop trolling the journalist.

On a related note, Vijay will soon be seen in the eagerly-awaited ‘Mersal’. Touted to be an action-drama, it has been directed by Atlee and will hit screens this year.

So, do you think that Vijay did the right thing by issuing a statement on the matter? Let us know in the space below.


    Good that he put out this statement. His fans had become abusive like no tomorrow with rape threats even.


    Came to know about Vijay whilst watching Sridevi’s Puli. What a fine actor. Its a shame the direction and script was bit weak. Otherwise it was a visual treat to watch the Legend Sridevi with Vijay.


    I watched few of his dubbed Tamil movie, such a great and fine actor. Most importantly what a thorough gentlemen. He is one of the best!
