Recently, the Anjaan director became the butt of jokes on social media. While the fans are busy trolling the director, Venkat Prabhu has come out in support of Lingusamy
These are dark and difficult times for ace director Lingusamy, who is just not able to shake off the string of flops which he has delivered over the years. His latest outing at box office, proved to be one of the biggest debacles of his career. Just when the director got into a retrospective mode on what went wrong with Anjaan, social media is now filled jokes on trolls on Lingusamy.
The remixed version of his interview to a leading news channel prior to the release of Anjaan has taken the social media by storm, as the fans are taking digs at the director for stating that he has ‘tuned’ himself to the script (naan appidiye tune aayirukein) and that he applied all that he has learnt in these years of cinema in Anjaan (KathuKita Motha Vithayum Erakirkein). While there has been no one from Kollywood to lend support to the poor director, the Mankatha filmmaker, Venkat Prabhu, finally came to the fore to defend Lingusamy.
This is what director Venkat Prabhu had to say on Twitter: "Lingusami Saar is a great film maker!! I worked with him in Ji!!! Every creators are not god!! Even god made mistakes in his creations!! So who are we to judge!! all u guys are so funny but no one makes sense!! Everything that matters to u is whether a movie is a hit or not!! If u guys are good audience why didn't u make thanga meengal a hit!!!?!???????? U can only troll us!! But what if we trolled u?!?! We make the movies for u!! We agree but why don't u make a good film a hit?!?"
Looks like the Chennai 600028 filmmaker is irked with the attitude of the audience, questioning their conscience for not supporting good cinema. Will this outburst from Venkat Prabhu silence the critics of Lingusamy and Anjaan? Only time will tell.
