During the course of her interaction, a fan asked her if she would share the screen with Vijay again. Answering in the affirmative, she said, “I would love to. I’m a big fan of @actorvijay.”

Actor Vijay has been in the news for the controversy surrounding his latest release Mersal. A day after the film’s release, Tamil Nadu BJP state unit president Tamilisai Soundarrajan took offence to the film, citing “incorrect” information on GST and Digital India. The BJP later demanded that the said scenes should be cut from the film.

“Scenes that convey wrong impression about GST and Digital India should be removed,” said Soundarrajan on Friday.
