Arun Vijay's recent tweet came as a shock to many as the actor had apparently mocked Sivakarthikeyan. Now, the actor has given a clarification to put an end to the controversy.

After the trailer of Sivakarthikeyan's Seema Raja on Saturday, Arun Vijay had tweeted, "Yaar Ellam Mass panuradhunnu oru vevastha illam pochu... Tamizh audienceku thorium. [sic]" he had tweeted before deleting it. The post roughly meant that every Tom, Dick and Harry is turning into a mass hero these days, but the Tamil audience knows the truth.

Although Arun Vijay did not directly mention the name of the actor, it did not take much time for people to assume that he was referring to Sivakarthikeyan as the trailer of Seema Raja was filled with mass moments.

Now, Arjun Vijay has come out with a clarification that his account was hacked and he did not write the demeaning post. "To all my sincere followers, the account issue has been resolved promptly! I appreciate all of you for understanding the situation... [sic]" read his latest post.

By then, many had drawn conclusions and criticised Arun Vijay for posting such a distasteful comment aimed at a rising star in Kollywood.

Giving further clarification, Arun Vijay, said, "For all these years that i've been in da industry, I know da value of hardwork n patience. No one's greater or smaller.I've always respected talent n will continue 2 do so. I've never had n never need 2 demean a colleague.Kindly dont divide da healthy brotherhood we actors share. [sic]"

Meanwhile, the trailer of Seema Raja has crossed over three million hits with close to a lakh upvotes for the video. The much-awaited movie will release on September 13.

On the other hand, Arun Vijay is gearing up for the release of Mani Ratnam's multi-starrer Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
