#SooraraiPottru has completely dominated Master teaser announcement 😲— L O G A N 🔰 (@loganspeakss) November 13, 2020
Never expected this to be honest.
Vijay is in his peak form and yet this is happening
Maybe after teaser release things may change.
Power of good cinema and Suriya's craze across south.
Vijay fans defended these accusations and countered the tweets of Suriya fans. However, Experts believe that Vijay decided to release the teaser on Diwali, not to fade “Soorarai Pottru” away, but to brush off the negativity that are doing rounds regarding himself and his father. S.A Chandrashekar, father of actor Vijay started a political party in the name of actor Vijay, minutes after which the actor denied having connection with the party. Since then, SAC has been interacting with media portals justifying his act. It is said that Vijay decided to go with the teaser only to brush of the negativities that were caused by his father.
