Simbu issues clarification on his alleged comment on OviyaAug 8, 2017 JB
Parody accounts in social media have often targeted movie stars to hamper their image by posting false information and views in their names. One such latest incident took place in Twitter where actor Silambarasan was said to have tweeted about Oviya, who was a part of the Bigg Boss show.
Talking about this Simbu said, "Some unscrupulous people targeting me and trying to spoil my name is not new to me. I have come over all the odds frequently. But the latest news that I tweeted some personal announcement with regard to an actress in Tamil Bigg Boss show, is hurting and bogus. Some irresponsible people posting such a tweet in fake accounts carrying my name is not a surprise to me, but what hurt me deeply was that some media people trusting such a fake tweet as my own and publishing and spreading it. I always believe media is a place where responsibility and accountability are the forte. But this irresponsible act of some media persons is something I cannot keep quiet and encourage. I hereby request the media to publish the news that comes from my desk and my verified accounts personally and not believe the act of someone who wants to spread false in my name".
He also tweeted, “I know who's behind this fake news. Final warning, if you still? Different reply in a very different way. Don't unleash the god of a devil”.
