Actor Vijay is one of the very few actors who has huge fan following in South India. Having acted in more than 60+ films, he is in the top race to become the highest paid actor in Kollywood. His most recent film is Atlee’s BIGIL in which the actor essayed three different looks. While playing the character Michael, Vijay who is known for his unique mannerisms in number of his movies, would repeatedly do a unique gesture with his hand while teasing his co-actors in the movie.
This mannerism was loved by his fans who started trending it by performing it in Tik Toks and other social media platforms. Now, to our shock, that particular mannerism of the actor was already done by Ravi Teja in a movie called as “Bengal Tiger”.

All the three films of Atlee became blockbusters despite of the plagiarism controversies. His latest film “Bigil” hit the screens as Diwali release and making big numbers in box office.
He is often criticized for replicating the movies of ace filmmaker Manirathnam, tried a genre which Manirathnam hasn’t done yet for the first time. His debut film “Raja Rani” has been widely compared with “Mouna Ragam” a cult classic of Manirathnam.
