Dulquer Salmaan has been trolled on social media over a dialogue in his recent Malayalam movie ‘Varana Avashyamund.’ A section of the people felt that Dulquer Salmaan has insulted the sentiments of Tamil people by comparing LTTE leader Prabhakaran with a dog. Dulquer has now clarified the issue; he states that the dialogue wasn’t meant to insult anyone. His clarification statement reads as follows:  
“A lot of people have brought to my notice that the Prabhakaran joke in Varane Avashyamund is insulting to the Tamizh people. It was not intentional. The joke is a reference to an older Malayalam film Pattana Pravesham and is a common Meme in Kerala. It is a common name in Kerala as well so it wasn't directed at any person living or dead as our disclaimer mentions in the beginning of the film. Most people reacting are doing so without watching the film and are trying to spread hate. Hating on me and my director Anoop we can accept. Kindly keep it to us and not our fathers or senior actors from the film. I apologise to all of the good and kind tamizh people who felt offended. I have never intended to offend anyone through my films or my words. It's genuinely a misunderstanding. P.S. Some of you are being extremely abusive ,threatening, deliberately hurtful and insulting family along with us. I wish that weren't so.” 
VJ turned actress Ramya has also defended Dulquer’s statement via Twitter - “Knowing him for a considerably decent amount of time I can vouch that @dulQuer has always had the highest regards for us and feels belonged in Chennai .We are cooler than this and can take things with a pinch of salt . Pl stop spreading unwanted hatred.”
