At a time when many on social networking and microblogging sites hitting out at Karthi Sivakumar for Alex Pandian, the actor has got some solid backing.
Venkat Prabhu, the director of Karthi's next movie Biriyani, and G Dhananjayan, southern head of UTV Motion Pictures, have tweeted in support of Karthi.
'In Alex Pandian, Karthi did justice as an actor and producers backed it up well as a product! I don't see why people are annoyed. When a big actor's movie bonk at the box office how can it be the directors fault? Guys now understand, no matter what, writer/director is the key. Actors only deliver performance and I am not supporting his films!! Give credit to the right person is what I am asking,' wrote Karthi
Reacting to this, Dhananjayan tweeted: 'Well said sir. Directors are the Creators and they make it happen finally. Artistes or Producers can only do their best.'
