Fan club members of STR were involved in a protest against BJP for garlanding slippers for the actor’s cut-out at Tambaram MR Theatre. The protest was held by around 100 Simbu fans at the BJP office in T. Nagar
The Police arrived soon at the spot and insisted the fans to clear the area as the permission was denied for the protest. But the fans were quite determined about fighting it out for the sake of their hero. Finally, the police arrested 50 fan club members.
Says STR’s dad T Rajendran:
“There is nothing wrong in the gesture of fans as they are up here for the right reason. Vaanam boasts of an outstanding message to take home and it has created a huge impact on audiences and nothing is there in the film which hurts the feelings of any community.”
TR himself rushed to the police station and released the 50 fan club members.
