By the time Tollywood forgets the fan wars over the biggest Sankranti competitors ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ and ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’, the industry is stuck with another spat on social media. Though the stars tend to maintain a healthy and hail relationship off-camera, box-office collections, remunerations and various other fan-made criteria tend to trigger fan wars which are now taking an ugly form on social media of late.
It is to the known knowledge that Kollywood is familiar with these fan wars which tend to take place almost on every possible release of the stars like Rajinikanth, Kamal Hassan, Vijay and Ajith. This heat seems to hit the neighbouring Tollywood industry but this time, the sullen trend crossed the borders.
It all started with the makers of ‘Naarappa’, the upcoming flick of Victory Venkatesh releasing the first look poster. Least did they expect that the poster would trigger a fan war between the fans of Tollywood and Kollywood which started trending on social media. ‘Naarappa’ happens to be the remake of Dhanush’s ‘Asuran’ with fans of Dhanush and Venkatesh taking to the comments box which in turn roped various other actors into the fight. Fans took to social media comparing the heroes’ look in various remade movies comparing them. In no time, hashtags #TeluguRealHeroes and #UnrivalledTamilActors started trending leaving social media on fire.
While the film analysts suggested the interference of the heroes to subside the ugly spats, we have to wait and see if the heroes step in or stay out of the scene to keep their hands clean. Previously when the hashtags #FakeQueenMaheshBabu and #FakingKaBaapAlluArjun trended, hero Siddharth took the initiative to address the issue. Will the industry heads take up the responsibility to bring harmony?
Manam manam trolls vesukuntam bane untam…
But vere industry vallu mana heroes meda trolls veste thattukolemu
That's the power of our #TFI….
