Vijay and Ajith fans clashed on social media on Friday, 29 May, due to Suriya's "Masss".
Ajith and Vijay's fans often indulge in war of words on social media sites. But this time, the fight started due to Suriya's "Masss".
Venkat Prabhu, in his usual style, has used some of the popular music and dialogues of Ajith and Vijay in his latest movie. In one scene, Suriya takes out a knife from his pocket when the background score of Vijay's "Kaththi" is played. In another instance, Ilayathalapathy's "Megamai Vandhu Pogiren" from "Thullatha Manamum Thullum" is used for a sequence.
On the other end, Ajith's "It is my 'f...ng' game..." dialogue from "Mankatha" has also been used. All these won huge appreciation in theatres. But a scene, wherein Suriya and Premji turn navy officers named Jagadish and Vinayak Mahadev, led to the fight.
Jagadish was the name of Vijay in blockbuster "Thuppakki" and Vinayak Mahadev was the name of Ajith in "Mankatha".
People soon discovered that the hero, Suriya, was named after Vijay's character and Ajith's character's name was given to the comedian.
Following this, Vijay's fans created memes and the war of words began in no time. If it was not enough, Ajith's "Veeram" background score, used to "Naan Kadavul" Rajendran, was trolled by Vijay's fans.
Meanwhile, "Masss" released to positive reviews from the audience and critics on Friday, 29 May. The horror-comedy movie has been appreciated for commercial values, Suriya's performance, technicalities and Venkat Prabhu's direction.
The Tamil movie, which has Nayanthara and Pranitha in the female lead roles, has got a fantastic opening at the box office.
