“Mersal teaser was postponed respecting the release of Vivegam”
Thala Ajith’s Vivegam was released on August 24 amidst tremendous hype. The movie has opened to mixed reviews from the critics. Many have pointed out Siva’s medicore direction skills as the reason for the let down. Despite the mixed word of mouth, there has not been any big impact on the movie’s box office collections. Fans have given a tremendous reception for the movie across all the release centres in Tamil Nadu.
Vijay fans and Ajith fans as always have indulged in trolling and mocking each other’s movies. Vivegam’s mixed reviews has made way for excessive trolls in social medias. Vijay and Ajith are two of the biggest stars in South India, both of whom have an enviable fan following. Even while the fans are fighting over their films and stardom, the two actors have always maintained a very healthy relationship.
Ruben, one of Kollywood’s most sought after editors is the only common link in Mersal and Vivegam. He has simultaneously worked in both these big ticket films. Ruben, upset over the negativity in socila medias, has now written a note on his Facebook page urging the fans to show some maturity. In his post, he has written about how the makers of both the films had a mutual understanding and respect for each other.
Apparently, Vivegam’s trailer was postponed for Mersal single release and likewise Mersal’s teaser release has been pushed respecting the release of Vivegam. He also requested the fans not to spread hatred.
Ruben’s Facebook post is now trending virally across social media platforms. Many have appreciated him for showing the guts to open up on such an issue rather than maintaining a comfortable silence like what others are doing. A former assistant to veteran Antony, Ruben has worked in several superhit films like Raja Rani, Theri etc.
