The makers of “Comali” movie managed to grab the headlines in Tamilnadu amidst the waves that are being created by the Bigg Boss show and Kashmir issue. But the reason behind the attention they are getting is not for so right reasons.
The trailer of Jayam Ravi starrer “Comali” released few days before and went viral across the Internet despite of having a mediocre plot line which is evident through the trailer cuts. 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.

After the director and producer of the movie accepted to remove the scene from the movie, Jayam Ravi released a press release to express his regret over the issue. The surprising fact about the press release is that the actor mentioned about Rajinkanth’s response to the trailer after watching it.
