Chennai: Malayalam actor Siddique commented on Kollywood star Vijay stating that he may be a superstar, but not a super actor. Vijay is one of the most popular actors of Tamil cinema. But the star has a large fan following across the world.

It's true that everyone has his/her own choice, but it doesn’t mean someone could demean other actors, fans claim. Siddique is a popular actor and producer of the Malayalam film industry. In an interview, the 56-year-old actor made a rather disagreeable statement, which has not gone down well with Thalapathy’s fans, who have criticised Siddique for speaking against their favourite star.

According to a popular Malayalam website, Siddique also said, “The Malayalam film industry is lucky to have two big superstars: Mammootty and Mohanlal, who are equally impeccable actors. They help us make films like Madhura Raja and Lucifer. Every film industry, in fact, depends on superstars. We (character actors) survive because of them.”

The Malayalam actor further said, “Whereas, in Tamil cinema, the scenario is different. People like Vijay may be a superstar, but is not a super actor. It is his stardom that spurred him in the industry. However, I believe Kamal Haasan is a good actor and a superstar.”

Fans of Vijay have taken to Twitter to express their rage. Here’s a tweet shared by a Vijay fan.

Not just fans, other actors too came in support of Vijay. Hareesh Peradi, Malayalam-Tamil actor, shared a post on his Facebook account. He wrote that Vijay is a ‘super actor’ and a ‘super good human being’. On the work front, Vijay will be gearing up for Thalapathy 63.
