The trailer of Jayam Ravi's upcoming film, Comali, was launched today. Going by the trailer, the protagonist in the film, played by Jayam Ravi, regains his conscious after being in coma for 16 years. While the trailer has received good response for showcasing the stark contrasts between two different timelines in an entertaining way, it has also received some flak for taking a dig at Rajinikanth's political stand. A lot of tweets that are being posted in support of Rajinikanth slam the makers of Comali for being factually incorrect.
Mr @pradeeponelife & @actor_jayamravi pls get to know what Thalaivar said in 1996! Pls be respectful towards your industry legend than making fun in the name of comedy! Anyways as Thalaivar preaches, "Vaazhu, vaazha vidu", wishing all the best for #Comali 🤝 https://t.co/3LhVo6DGaa— Rajinifans.com (@rajinifans) August 3, 2019
For sake of creating hype disrespecting those whom who once treated as mentor is cheap act. #Rajinikanth never said he is coming to politics in 1996. & He announced his entry on 2017 December not on 2016. @pradeepon @actor_jayamravi #ComaliTrailer #நாளைய_தமிழகம்_ரஜினி pic.twitter.com/C8kiePeLmS— NRIதமிழன் (@nrithamizhan) August 3, 2019
If something is worst than a betrayal, that is what you did it to thalaivar today Mr.#Comali alias (@actor_jayamravi)— R@j!n!⭐️Follo🕶ers™ (@RajiniFollowers) August 3, 2019
Do u have any proof of #Rajinikanth sir confirming his political entry on 1996?
There’s a limit for everything, u lost all superstar fans respect! #எச்சத்தனம்
Can anyone show a video or any article from #ThalaivarRajinikanth saying that he'll enter politics in the 90s for sure? I just want to know if the troll is of any worth replying to.#Thalaivar #Rajinikanth#நாளைய_தமிழகம்_ரஜினி— Gautham (@i_am_GT_16) August 3, 2019

I hope, @actor_jayamravi clears the air and apologizes for the reference in trailer not just to calm down the fans not just to sell the movie but also he really did care when Thalaivar announced political entry..— ரௌடி (@Rowdy_3_) August 3, 2019
So please clarify.. #BoycottComali #நாளைய_தமிழகம்_ரஜினி pic.twitter.com/tfRWwbkEYO
Hi @actor_jayamravi#Rajinikanth never said he will come to politics during 1996 or anywhere until his first political announcement on December 31 2017. While doing movie, have sense of past & what's happening. #boycottComali— kalai (@kalaivanan471) August 3, 2019
