Filmmaker Seeman received flak in social media after his recent speech against actor Vijay went viral. Fans of Vjay condemned him for his remarks and warned him that he should stop making such references on their favourite hero. Seeman speaking at a political meeting recently said Vijay is not a hero in reality. He utters punchlines only on screen. Seeman said that Vijay fell at the feet of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. He made fun of Vijay meeting Chief Minister Palamiswami to solve problems during his movie's release.
Calling him a slave, Seeman said. 'Vijay is singing a song Oru Viral Puratchi in his film. Though he is not willing to act in my films, my ideologies are reflecting in his dialogues'. Seeman further said that Simbu is next superstar of the State. He is planning to do a movie with him soon.
