It all started when actor Sirish who is known for acting in a film named as “Metro” posted a picture with music director Yuvan Shankar Raja by wearing a “Hindi Theryathu Podaa” (Don’t know Hindi, get lost) t-shirt. Yuvan who is considered as “youth icon” wore a T-shirt saying “Tamizh Pesum Indian” (Tamil speaking Indian”.
“Deep in discussion , good things coming our way … !” read Metro Sirish’s caption.
Though it is work related post of the emerging actor, the caption in his T-shirt attracted wide number of online users. They who oppose Hindi imposition in Tamil nadu, started celebrating the post of the duo.

ஒரு சிறிய தீப்பொறி காட்டுத் தீயாகி இருக்கிறது. இந்தித் திணிப்பு என்பதை எதிர்க்கும் சட்டைகளை வெளியிட்டபோது யாரும் எதிர்பாராத அளவு இது இளைஞர்களிடம் வரவேற்பு பெற்றிருப்பது மகிழ்ச்சியளிக்கிறது. இந்தத் தலைமுறையும் மொழி உணர்வில் சளைத்ததல்ல.#ஹிந்தி_தெரியாது_போடா #StopHindiImposition pic.twitter.com/NIzA1DmYVb— Kanimozhi (கனிமொழி) (@KanimozhiDMK) September 6, 2020
As expected, these posts received severe backlash from the supporters of BJP party. Actress Aishwarya Rajesh was forced to delete her tweet due to the excess amount of abusive comments she received for her post. Gayathri Raguramm, member of BJP party reacted to a post in which Aishwarya can be seen saying that she know how to speak Hindi.
During the promotions of her only Hindi film “Daddy”, Aishwarya Rajesh, in an interview said that she knows Hindi very well when others believed that she knows to communicate only through English. Sharing the particular clipping of the video, supporters of BJP trolled her.
Actress and Dance choreographer, Gayathri Raguramm reacted to the video by laughing at it.

Another user named as “Nationalist” asked Aishwarya rajesh whom she is trying to cheat.
Comment your views on these kind of attacks made by BJP party members against Aishwarya Rajesh for wearing the T-shirt !!
