But the latest buzz says that it has been twisted.
Vijay Awards 2014 was held on July 5 at the Nehru Stadium in Chennai. Speaking at the event, Ram had criticised the way of choosing winners after his movie failed to get a nomination for Best Music Award category. He went on to invite Yuvan Shankar Raja on stage and presented the Best Movie Award won by him to the music director.
