There was a time when d creative department in Vijay TV was really creative & identified d real talents and came up vth novel idea. Now, most of their programs involve body shaming, & d women anchors are trolled & insulted in d name of comedy. The channel really needs a revamp.— Lalitha Janarthanan (@LalithaJanartha) September 2, 2021
Correct!! And it's with the acceptance of anchors and co artists only it happens. Humour took a different meaning is the hard truth!!— Amrudha (@amrudhavalli_m) September 3, 2021
