Director Seenu Ramasamy, who is known for making critically acclaimed films including Thenmerku Paruvakattru, Dharmadurai and Neerparavai tweeted “The current generation actors are not like MGR and Sivaji. Portraying Mahatmas like Anbu Chezhiyan in a bad light is disheartening. I’m for truth ” (எம்.ஜீ.ஆர், சிவாஜீ, போல் இல்லை இன்றைய நடிகர்கள்.அன்பு செழியன் போன்ற உத்தமர்கள் ஏனோ தவறாக சித்தரிக்கப்பவது வேதனை.நான் நியாயத்தின் பக்கமே)

This tweet of Seenu Ramasamy evoked a mixed response among the netizens and industry people. A few say that the director takes a dig on leading actors who mercilessly getting unrealistic remuneration from the producers, which in turn pushes the producers into trouble and he also satirically criticized Anbu Chezhiyan by calling ‘Uthamar’(Mahatma).

Netizens also say that Seenu Ramasamy is close to Anbu and that’s why he is supporting the financier. Only the Dharmadurai director knows what he really wanted to convey!
