Srinivasan also defended Simbu's statement where the actor had said that those who do not like "Yennai Arindhaal" have mental issues. The Powerstar said that STR expressed his excitement after watching Ajith's movie and it should not be taken out of context.

He tweeted, "Avaru mental nu podhuva sonaru, aana intha pasangala nangathan antha mentals nu trend panni sollitanunga :D I support my thambi Simbu :)"

His tweets on Ajith and "Yennai Arindhaal" have been overwhelmingly welcomed by Thala's fans. They are expressing their happiness by retweeting his posts.
