Actor Rio Raj is currently inside the Bigg Boss house and he is considered to be one of the strong contenders to be one of the finalists, this season. Rio was majorly loved by everyone before his Bigg Boss entry, but after getting inside the house, his game and attitude has received a mixed response. Having said that, Badri Venkatesh, the director of Rio's upcoming movie, Plan Panni Pannanum, took to his Twitter page to share some details about Rio's journey. Badri talked about Rio's struggle in his media journey and shared his love and respect for him.

Sharing a picture with Rio, Badri tweeted, "A simple guy from an humble background all the way from Erode, struggled and still struggling to carve a place for himself. He doesn't have any godfather nor any channel back him up. @rio_raj's victory is your victory and mine. He represents everyone who struggle. #Iloverio". When one of the fans asked Badri if he is posting this tweet to gather support and create a positive image for Rio, Badri responded by saying, "Ofcourse not. #planpannipannanum is not dependent on him alone. Game is a game. Let the best win. I strongly believe in collective wisdom. Only point is shun negativity in social media. Tom we need to see our post's again with pride and not deleting it."

Similarly, another fan asked Badri if Vijay TV is backing Rio since he is one of their talents, he requested everyone not to spread negativity on social media. Badri's reply tweet read, "What ever little I know. I have been a part of many shows in many channels. Generally the channel does nothing to spoil theIr reputation. As a professional I know everyone always play to the gallery. Rio represents you and me .Let's shun negativity on social media. ILOVERIO".

Director Badri made it clear that he did not post these tweets to gather support for his movie, Plan Panni Pannanum and clarified that this is a post just to express his love for Rio who has come a long way. Rio was launched as an actor in Sivakarthikeyan's production, Nenjamundu Nermaiyundu Odu Raja and now his second film is ready for release. Plan Panni Pannanum is said to be a fun-filled comedy entertainer that features Ramya Nambeesan as the female lead and Robo Shankar, Balasaravanan, MS Bhaskar, Rekha, Viji Chandrasekhar, and Aadukalam Naren in supporting roles.

The title track video song was recently unveiled at the Bigg Boss house and Rio was completely taken aback by the pleasant surprise. The film has music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
