Filmmaker Vignesh Shivan has landed himself in trouble due to his latest social media activity. He accidentally liked posts related to rumours of a fallout between Thalapathy Vijay and director Lokesh Kanagaraj, as well as a post about Nayanthara and Trisha. This led many to believe that Vignesh was endorsing the trolling content. Amid this, Vignesh issued a clarification and urged his fans to refrain from wasting their energy on what he termed a 'silly mistake.'

On October 8, he accidentally liked the abovementioned posts, which garnered attention on social media. A few hours later, Vignesh realised that he had liked the wrong posts. After facing criticism from fans, Vignesh Shivan took to X (formerly Twitter) to issue an apology

He wrote, "Dear Vijay sir fans, Loki fans... sorry for the confusion.

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.
