The debate about who the next Superstar is in Tamil cinema has been going on for quite sometime now and more often than not these arguments tend to attract unpleasant comments from fans.
Thanks to the transparent nature of social media forums, prominent celebrities not involved in the discussion have requested fans not to come up with such comments in the past.
One such celebrity was Dhanush who made a similar request to his fans on a popular TV show. Ironically, he became the reason to start the much disliked debate all over again.
He has said, "Vijay sir is a good friend of mine, he is a very humble and friendly person. While talking, he will place his hand over your shoulders and will let you to do the same".
"He has his own set of fans, his own style quotient and has made a name for himself as a Superstar. I am honoured to have a friend like him," said Dhanush much to the surprise of everyone.
Only minutes later, the Anegan star's words spread like ripples and needless to say, the old debate was risen from its grave, the only difference being Dhanush's inclusion in it this time around.
Perhaps, the freedom of speech dies with the acquisition of stardom as far as Tamil cinema is concerned, for stars will no longer be able to get away after making a debatable comment.
