Dive In


People who are trying to steal the assets of Madurai Aadheenam are speaking ill about Thalapathy. Stop blabbering for cheap publicity.

That’s what posters put up by angry fans of Tamil superstar Vijay declare—taking aim at the pontiff of the Madurai monastery. His crime: At a meeting organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, the pontiff had accused Vijay of insulting Hindu gods in his movies—and asked people not to watch his films. Hence, the outraged posters—which also claim that his fans don’t have any caste or religion and the “sky's the limit for their love towards Thalapathy.” Well, they do say movie stars are no less than gods in South India….


​​Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team looks at whether Nupur Sharma is indeed a ‘fringe element’—and the ‘right to repair’ movement. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
