The Jimikki Kammal video featuring a group of students and professors from the Indian School of Commerce, Kochi, has gone unimaginably viral.

However, the popularity of the video has also spurred a turf war of sorts.

With many Tamil men becoming fans of Sheril, one of the lead dancers in the video, social media is full of memes and troll videos comparing the women of the two states. Yes, truly facepalm worthy.

This has prompted Tamil women to release their own versions of Jimikki Kammal.


Actor Sai Pallavi, who played a Tamil woman named Malar in the Malayalam film Premam, and performed a blistering dance for the Rockankuthu number, has become the poster girl for proving that Tamil women can dance, too.

Meanwhile, Sheril in a video interview to Radio Mirchi, weighed in on the "debate" by stating that women of both states were equally pretty and there was no reason for anyone to draw comparisons.


Women actors from Kerala have always been popular in Tamil Nadu. Popular contestant Oviya of Bigg Boss, who has an enviable fanbase in the state is also from Kerala.
