On seeing this tweet from VP, political analyst, sports anchor and Doctor Sumanth Raman, posted a tweet blaming those who failed to attend the funeral of SPB. He said that those who benefited a lot more from SPB songs than Vijay chose to stay away, taking sly dig at Superstar Rajinikanth and actor Ajith.
This tweet irked the followers of AJith and Rajinikanth who said that their presence will cause a crowd gathering which will lead to more COVID 19 cases. It is notable that Sumanth himself pointed out people gathering in large number to board a train and expressed his disappointment. One of a fan quoted the tweet and questioned the contradiction between his own statements.
Check out few of the reactions from fans :

Sir, you are a doctor right— Mark Antony (@hunmid12) September 26, 2020
You know the pace at which corona is spreading and still you want to downgrade the people who are not visiting, showing the agenda
you could have simply shown respect to vijay but just to grab attention you are adding negative things. You can be better
U need fight between rajini, kamal, ajith and vijay fans right? Unnecessary tweet now. Respect for vijay, but u r such an influencer, please delete this tweet.— Arun Mohan Chennai (@_arun_chennai_) September 26, 2020
What do you mean sir? Create a mass gathering for funeral & spread more COVID19? Didn't expect such tweet from you! Shame!— Swaminathan (@snathancv) September 26, 2020

Stop this petty politics Sumanth. In this pandemic situation, it is best for everyone and also for Shri SPB family for everyone to pray for his soul at their place. So, don’t talk as if you know everything and whatever you saying is right. Stop this comparison of one with another— venkatraman (@venkatramane) September 26, 2020
