Director Atlee once again became the victim of mindless trolls of online medium. Atlee is arguably one of the most loved and hated filmmaker of Tamil cinema right now. Being a former assistant of Shankar, Atlee’s way of presenting his films and the castings he choose for the characters are considered as his major qualities. All the four films of Atlee became blockbusters despite of the plagiarism controversies. His recent release “BIGIL” has reportedly collected 300 crores in the box office. The film marks the third collaboration of the duo, after “Theri” and “Mersal”.
Being one of the most paid filmmakers of Kollywood, Atlee is now all set to debut as director in Bollywood according to sources. Apart from being trolled for copying plots from cult films, Atlee also got trolled for copying captions for his social media posts, a couple of times. Earlier the filmmaker got trolled for copying a caption from a twitter handle while wishing director Shankar for teachers day.
