Actor Shanthanu, his wife Kiki Vijay, Director Rathnakumar and Actor Vishnu Vishal reacted to a remark made by movie journalists of Valaipechu youtube channel. They who took a sly dig at Shantanu’s professional career, indirectly mocked Shantanu’s father Bhagyaraj for choosing scripts for his son. The “Chakkarakatti” actor slammed them through his official twitter account with a number of tweets.
In one of their recent episode, members of “Valaipechu” youtube channel who is known for providing exclusive movie updates, talked about the Tamil anthology film which is going to stream in Netflix online platform. The four stories which are going to feature in the anthology film were directed by renowned filmmakers of Tamil film industry, Vettri Maaran, Sudha Kongara, Vignesh Shivan and Gautham Vasudev Menon. Followed by the success of Lust Stories in Bollywood, Netflix came up with this initiation in South which is going to portray the “Honour killing” in Tamil nadu. Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, Kalidas Jayaram, Anjali, Sai Pallavi, Prakash raj are some of the known faces we are going to witness in this first of its kind web film in Tamil.
While updating about the news, Bismi, one of the movie journalists of Valaipechu said that the film is receiving good reviews from those who watched it. He said that Kalidas Jayaram and Shantanu Bhagyaraj are going to have a handful of projects after the release of this anthology film due to their outstanding performance. “Kalidas and Shantanu are going to be busy again after the release of this film” said Bismi to which Anthanan, another journalist said “Not again, they are going to be busy for the first time in their career”.
“Shanthanu is going become a Superstar of short films it seems. Earlier, he featured in a Gautham Menon’s short which was good and he himself made a short film as well. Why he is not excelling much in big screens ?” asked Anthanan to which Sakthi replied “Perhaps, he is selecting the scripts for short films by himself”, indirectly mocking Bhagyaraj, a legendary filmmaker and father of Shanthanu.

However, Shantanu brushed it off in one of his interviews. Read : Shanthanu Finally Opened On Why He Missed To Do “Subramaniyapuram” !! WATCH

You earn a living talking about others. So keep your “nakkal paechu” with urself …” the actor wrote in his tweet.
