Fan wars between the supporters of actor Rajinikanth and Vijay are nothing new. However, a recent controversy has taken the ongoing battle to a new level. It all started when a news item about a shared scene between Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Thalaivar 171 and Jailer, and another scene between Nelson Dilipkumar’s Leo and Jailer, surfaced online.
The news claimed that Lokesh had narrated the scene to Rajinikanth first, but it was later used in Jailer without Lokesh’s consent. This led to speculations about Lokesh’s involvement in Thalaivar 171. Meanwhile, another version of the image suggested that Leo would have a similar scene to Jailer’s sniper shoot scene. The claims quickly ignited a fan war between supporters of both actors online. However, @MadrasDiariesMD, the purported source of the image, later clarified that there was no truth to the rumors.
This incident highlights the growing trend of unsubstantiated information and blind tweets contributing to fan wars, fueled by the presence of verified accounts on social media platforms. Fans now have to sift through the noise to find authentic news amidst the chaos.
