Ardent fans of Simbu misconstrued what director Vignesh Shivan spoke at the title track and first look poster launch of Sivakarthikeyan’s Remo. They took him to task on social media platforms for not crediting Simbu, who offered Vignesh’s debut directorial opportunity with Poda Podi, during his one-minute long speech at the event.
A frustrated Vignesh Shivan took to his micro-blogging page and urged fans to stop the verbal attack, which they duly did.
I have not mentioned that Anirudh sir introduced me to lyrics! Please don’t make this up like that! I have said he has always supported me from the struggling times . STR sir gave me my first film yes but after that, I went through a struggling phase and many people have helped me cross that including Simbu sir himself. At that time Anirudh used to give me work opportunities through lyrics and music videos, which kept me active and take care of my family. Dhanush sir later gave me another chance for living through Naanum Rowdy Dhaan and I have really worked my way here . It would take 15 minutes for me to say the whole history in the shortest form and Remo stage had only a minute for me and I thanked the team around there n it’s their stage! It would have not been appropriate to start from my first film !. In the very few interviews of mine I have always thanked Simbu sir and have never gotten acknowledged by you people! I don’t know why suddenly your making this up out of nowhere ! I didn’t mention even about my mom and dad because it’s not that kind of an event. Please understand an all your memes or messages are very demeaning and not needed ! Kindly stop this over reaction and I just texted and requested Simbu sir to ask whoever is doing this to stop this . Do not spoil the respect and the rapport I have always maintained for Simbu sir and yes he started my life and I have always kept it that way and mentioned in spaces I could ! Please don’t over react for this inappropriate thing. Requesting all you vehement STR fans
