Vairamuthu is considered as a legend among the lyricists in Tamil industry which has had many renowned writers like Kannadasan, Vaali, Pattukottai Kalyanasundaranar to name a few.
Recently, Vairamuthu referred to a research done on Aandal, one of the Azhvars and that has stirred many controversies. Many are not happy that Vairamuthu registered such a comment on a revered poet and devotee like Aandal whose poems are read even today by many during the month of Margazhi.

He has shared an opinion from a documentary from an American university. Check the full video to understand what Madhan Karky thinks about this statement.
