Now, the film's hero Jayam Ravi has come up with a statement clarifying his stance on the controversial scene. "A particular substance in the trailer involving Shri Rajinikanth sir has unfortunately hurt the sentiments of a few Thalaivar fans. I would like to make it clear that the element was included in a positive light. Being a hardcore Superstar Rajini sir fan, I have been as eager and anxious as any other follower to see him embark on his political journey. We all grew up watching his movies, his action and style had mandatorily become an inherent part of our nature and there is no way that we would show such disrespect to him in any way or his fans."
Ravi also revealed that Rajinikanth himself saw the trailer and appreciated the team. "What has made him more lovable than before is that he saw the trailer of Comali and appreciated our team for the creative appeal and congratulated us for coming up with a unique idea. However, to see that such ideation without any deliberate intent has been receiving resentments and some negative feedback from a section of his fans, we have decided to delete the portion in the movie," said the actor.
Comali is all set to release on August 15.
