Wishing Shreya Ghoshal on her birthday, singer Srinivas tweeted: "All you youngster musicians out there, aspire to be like Shreya. Focus on music and find happiness and give out happiness to your listeners . Happy birthday @shreyaghoshal".
Immediately, fans started asking Srinivas whether he is sly tweeting about Chinmayi as she has been raising voice against predators like lyricist Vairamuthu and singer Karthik.
Srinivas replied to one of the fans saying that Chinmayi is a talented singer but his wish is she should focus more on music and contribute more to singing.
Rahul Ravindran, Chinmayi's husband said that singers, athletes, maids, cops, auto-drivers, and software engineers must be brave like Chinmayi. "Others will either help or discourage but only you can speak for yourself", tweeted Rahul.
Many netizens objected Srinivas' sly tweet against Chinmayi.
