With reasons not clearly known, an ugly online brawl was witnessed by netizens between Prince Mahesh Babu's fans and Tamil top star Ilaya Thalapathi Vijay's fans on the evening of 31 March. While Mahesh Babu's fans trended the hashtag #RemakeStarVijay, Vijay's fans trended DummyStarMaheshBabu.
Vijay's fans targeted Mahesh Babu's face expressions while Mahesh Babu's fans trolled Vijay's fans claiming that most of the remake films of Mahesh Babu were done by Vijay. Finally, Mahesh's fans are learnt to have won the battle with around 300K tweets.
Peacemongers, however, worried about fan wars and appealed fans of all heroes not to indulge in ugly fights in social media.
Mahesh Babu will be working with Parasuram soon under Mythri Movie Makers. Vijay's Master is slated for release this summer season. Lokesh Kanagaraj is the director.
