With the controversy in full swing, Taapsee said that she had been 'misquoted' and added that she never compared Ajith with Rajinikanth. She also made it clear that she was trying to say that she likes Ajith the person more than his on-screen avatars.
Her Exact Words
"Misquoted. In my times interview I mentioned I am more of an AJITH fan than THALA fan. Didn't compare him with rajni sir at all. Basically meaning m a fan of his off screen persona more than on screen, to MAKE IT SIMPLE."
