Actor Dhanush finds himself in the midst of a controversy!
Yes, the actor recently participated in the audio launch function of Asuran, his next film with director Vetrimaran.
During his speech at the audio launch, Dhanush observed that, “I have to express my heartfelt thanks to Kalaipuli S Thanu, the producer of this film. These days, it is not an easy task to get one’s salary from a producer. The producers’ might have their own set of complaints against actors. But from my personal experience, several people(producers) have cheated me and continue to cheat me. But this film’s producer Thanu handed me my entire salary for this film even before the film began. That was important and crucial for me at that point in time. I will always be grateful for that. He has provided the film and us well. This film should hopefully do wonders.”
These comments do not seem to have gone down well with a section of the producers.
For instance, producer A L Alagappan took strong exception to these statements and said that several producers have vanished from the film industry because of the losses they had incurred by making some of his films.
The anger expressed by the producers have in turn got the fans of the actor to express solidarity with him.
The hashtag, #WeStandWithDhanush, has now begun trending on Twitter as scores of fans have backed the actor in the issue.
