Days after the Tollywood and Kollywood went on a fan war which was triggered over the Tamil remake of ‘Asuran’ starring Dhanush, another such social media war started which is now taking the film fraternity to storm. It all started with a section of social media users comparing the performance of Vijay in ‘Gilli’ and ‘Pokkiri’ with that of Mahesh in ‘Okkadu’ and ‘Pokiri’.
In no time, #RemakeStarVijay and #DummyStarMahesh started trending on social media grabbing the attention of national media as well. While Vijay fans took potshots at Mahesh’s acting skills, Tollywood fans took to social media to hit back the comments. This led to a fan war which continued for two days while the actors refused to respond over the triggered issue. Memes and trolls surfaced comparing the performance of the two heroes in similar scenes of their movies.
