Actress Isha Koppikar, a popular name in Bollywood, recently spoke to a leading daily about her stint in Tamil cinema and made a few big statements, which seem to have offended several fans in a big way. Talking about her Kollywood days, she said that Arvind Swami is her favourite Tamil actor and added that she enjoyed working with him in En Swasa Kaatre. She also said that she was quite fond of Ajith Kumar and added that she was not aware whether he was 'still around'.
"I meet old, and new ones, too. Favourite stars... Arvind Swami is my all-time favourite because I have worked with him. And I used to be quite fond of Ajith back then - I don't know if he's still around," she added.
Not surprisingly, Thala fans did not like this and ripped her apart for her 'insulting' comment.

Even though Isha Koppikar compared sivakarthi with Rajini and it angered Rajini fans, the bigger insult is to Ajith and his fans, when she said "I don't know whether Ajith is still acting".

During the interview, Isha also compared Sivakarthikeyan to Rajinikanth and offended Thalaivar fans as well.
On a related note, Ajith is currently shooting for the Tamil remake of Pink, which is likely to hit screens later this year. On the other hand, Isha is currently awaiting the release of her Kannada film Kavacha, which features Sandalwood star Shivarajkumar in the lead.
