Blockbuster Tamil filmmaker Vignesh Shivan issued a clarification on Sunday, October 8, for liking a post about 'Thalapathy' Vijay having a tiff with director Lokesh Kanagaraj. The Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal director extended his apologies in a detailed post on his X account and expressed his excitement for Vijay and Lokesh Kanagaraj's Leo releasing theatres worldwide on October 19, while requesting fans to not waste their energy for his silly mistake. Vignesh Shivan wrote, "Dear Vijay sir fans , Loki fans … sorry for the confusion (folded hands emoticon) without even seeing the msg , the context or the content of the video or the tweet, by just seeing Loki’s interview I liked the video ! cos am a big fan of his works and his interviews and the way he speaks !" (sic)

Vignesh Shivan stated that he should have been more careful in reading the post properly first and opened up about his anticipation for Leo's release. He wrote, "Am also eagerly awaiting for the grand release of Thalapathy vijay sir’s Leo .. by impulse , I jus liked seeing Loki bro’s image in the interview , like the same way I saw a shot of Nayan in a video clip where she had performed brilliantly and it was one of my fav shots so instantly liked that tweet also …. My bad ! I didn’t even see the video inside or read the tweet involved in both the cases ! Should have been careful ! Sorry." (sic) He further mentioned how it was a silly mistake on his part to not look at the post properly and requested fans to not waste their time unnecessarily. The Naanum Rowdydhaan director stated, "So it’s a silly mistake from my side ! And I express my apologies to all the good Thalapathy fans across the globe (red heart emoticon) waiting to see the blockbuster movie on 19th October with the same excitement as ya’ll ! So please stop wasting ur time in commenting more about this silly mistake and start celebrating LEO and all the good work that’s been put into it ! Godbless (folded hands emoticons) JaiHindh."

Leo starring Vijay and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj is the duo's second film after their box office money-spinner, Master (2021), and is all set to take a staggering opening in less than two weeks' time. As for Vignesh Shivan, there is buzz that he will be collaborating with Pradeep Ranganathan of Comali (2019) and Love Today (2022) fame for a new project, with an official announcement yet to be made.
