Bharathiraja, one of Kollywood's most respected filmmakers, has often grabbed attention for criticising Rajinikanth's political views. In fact, some time ago, he had called the 'Superstar' an 'agent of Karnataka', which upset fans big time. Now, Bharathiraja is in the limelight for a surprising reason. The ace filmmaker recently invited Rajinikanth for an event and indicated that he is willing to let bygones be bygones. While the Sivaji hero accepted the invitation and treated Bharathiraja with respect, the 'Thalaivar Army' called the Karuthamma director a 'hypocrite'.
When #Thalaivar starts the party, this Brutus Bharathiraja will be the first one to attack him (saying tamil, blah, blah). In spite of knowing it, Thalaivar gives respect. That's "The True Legend" for you
