Actor Shanthanu who was last seen in Vijay’s “Master” replied to a meme which trolled him. The actor who is pretty much active in social media platforms, said that he hopes the meme made the creator of it happy. Through the meme, the Internet user compared Shanthanu’s role in “Master” with Shabheer’s role in “Sarpatta Parambarai”, Mahendran’s role in “Master” and Joju George’s role in “Jagame Thanthiram”. Through the caption, the memer trolled Shanthanu by saying that the meme was created by Shanthanu himself.
Ever since the film “Master” released in the theatres of Tamil nadu, trolls targeting the supporting actors of the film kept surfacing in the internet. Based on their limited screen time, users of social media platforms made memes to troll the actors of the film. Shanthanu, Dheena, Andrea, Malavika Mohanan, Sanjeev became the primary victims of the mindless trolls in social media.
In the film “Master”, Shanthanu played the role of Bhargav, a college student with an influential background. He who initially dislikes Gouri Kishen for opposing him in the college election, ends up having a strong mutual bond with her. However, Bhavani, to avenge JD, kills him by staging a road accident. Many fans who expected Shanthanu to play a significant role in the film, started trolling him after seeing the movie.
A scene where JD defines Bhargav as a deadlier rowdy comparing to all the henchmen of Bhavani, became a widely used meme template in recent times due to the flaw in the character arc of Shanthanu in the entire film. The actor reacted to the trolls that emerged regarding “Bhargav”, a number of times in social media platforms. Now, to troll the role sarcastically, a meme creator compared the actor’s role with some of the highly lauded characters that took place in films such as “Sarpatta parambarai”, “Jagame Thanthiram” and “Master”.
“Screen presence may be shorter but their performance was lit” read the meme’s caption. Sharing the post, a meme page wrote “A meme by Shanthnu Bhagyaraj” to troll the “Chakkarakatti” actor.
