The few you mentioned are not Thalaivar fans . They might be film fans that’s all . Thalaivar fans are really upset . The thing is you people still doesn’t know the real 90s pulse of Thalaivar fans . But said and done . Now we will catch up with the movie .

Thank you. But is not just “few” brother almost all fans got hurt.
Let’s not take legends life (which is not even fact as it was in scene) as jolly material while u intend to provide social message ..
Again its not very few.. 99.9% of thalaivar fans.

The trailer seems to be mocking Rajinikanth’s unending delay in entering politics, which has upset Rajini fans and members of Rajini Makkal Mandram – a fan-based organisation. The upset fans are now demanding that certain scenes, which they think are unkind to Rajinikanth, be cut from the movie.
Towards the end, the makers decided to take a sly dig at the political entry of Superstar Rajinikanth. To prove that they are living in 2016, Yogi Babu switches on the TV in which we can see Rajinikanth announcing his political arrival. Jayam Ravi who denies to believe it says that it is 1996. This irked many Rajinikanth fans who considered it as a severe mocking. Many started trending hashtags such as #BoycottComali, #நாளைய_தமிழகம்_ரஜினி etc. Few stated the fact that the day Rajinikanth announced his political entry is December 31, 2017 not 2016. Fans also said that Rajinikanth has never officially announced his political entry before 2017.
