Jayam Ravi’s upcoming film Comali is now the talk of the K-Town after the release of its hilarious trailer. Directed by Pradeep Ranganathan, the film is about a hero who wakes from 16 years of coma and struggles to face the drastically changed world.
The trailer of the film was well-received by the audience as it was hilarious and decently-creative. However, the fans of Rajinikanth are furious with film and the crew since the trailer takes a dig at the Superstar.
A two-minute long trailer of the movie was released on Saturday after which Rajini fans took to Twitter claiming that the actor has been portrayed wrongly in the movie. However, in a recent press meet, the director of the movie revealed why he kept such scene in the trailer.
“I am a biggest fan of Rajinikanth sir. I am his hardcore fan that I have done “Paalabishegam” for his Lingaa movie. The only reason behind me keeping this scene is to make him enter politics as soon as possible” said Pradeep, the director of the movie in a recent press meet.

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.
The latest update revealed that the makers of the movie have accepted to remove the particular scene from the film. Check out the update here :
