After Vijayakant, here's who's earning the ire of Rajni fans. Actress Amy Jackson posted a picture on twitter of her posing with Superstar Rajnikanth, and director Ram Gopal Varma swooped in to go on a twitter rant. 

Jibes at his superstardom, his lack of six pack abs and his fame -  which he says is deserves psychiatric study, Ram Gopal Varma didn't spare his befuddlement at Rajnikanth's meteroic rise to fame. 

 

Kamaal R Khan was also swift to respond, keeping it to one tweet however.

The Rajnikanth bashing is recent, but Thalaivar, now basking in his Padma Vibhushan, has little time or care for twitter trolling. DMDK Chief Vijayakant took to berating Rajnikanth in his campaign rally at Tiruttani in Tiruvallur district, subsequently angering many fans of the Superstar. “Vijayakant! Not afraid of anyone. I am good to those who are good (nallavannukku nallavan). I am not afraid like Rajini Annan,“ said Vijayakant, using lines from Rajninikanth's. Vijayakant had spoken in a similar vein during a public meeting in Villivakkam on Friday . The strong remarks against the actor, however, angered his fans, who set fire to his effigy in Kodungaiyur in Chennai.
