Rajini reference scene in ‘Comali’ to be deleted

Following outbursts by Rajini fans alleging that trailer of Comali was aimed at defaming their favourite hero, actor Jayam Ravi issued a clarification. He said, “We have decided to delete the portion in the movie. Keeping fingers crossed, I am happily waiting to meet you as Comali in theatres on August 15.” He added, “However, a particular substance in the trailer involving Rajinikanth sir has unfortunately hurt the sentiments of a few Thalaivar fans. I would like to make it clear that the element was included in a positive light. Being a hardcore Rajini sir fan, I have been as eager and anxious as any other follower to see him embark on his political journey.”

Jayam Ravi further added, “We all grew up watching his movies, his action and style had become an inherent part of our nature and there is no way that we would show such disrespect to him in any way or his fans.’ ‘What has made him more lovable than before is that he saw the trailer of Comali and appreciated our team for the creative appeal and congratulated us for coming up with a unique idea,” said Jayam Ravi. ‘However to see that such an ideation without any deliberate intent has been receiving resentments and some negative feedbacks from a section of his fans, we have decided to delete the portion in the movie.’
