Filmmaker Pa Ranjith recently wrote on Twitter, “Happy that Aramm has won. Teach and protest together. Thanks and congratulations to the director, film unit and thozhar Nayanthara.”
Netizens started trolling Ranjith for not having mentioned Gopi Nainar’s name in the tweet. Also, he has been criticised for addressing heroine Nayanthara as ‘Thozhar’.
There have been allegations that Ranjith’s Madras was lifted from Gopi’s Karuppar Nagaram, but neither of them had come out, talking about this.
Gopi, has now issued a statement, asking people “not to hurt anyone”. The statement adds that Gopi and Ranjith share a friendly relationship, and that he believes they can make society better if they are united. He also asked his fans and supporters to not destroy that bond.
