Chiyaan Vikram is known for his professionalism and friendly attitude. However, when he was invited to be part of the Independence Day parade by America Tamil Sangam in the US, his behavior is said to have irked the organizers. Coming down heavily on the Anniyan star’s attitude, Prakash M. Swamy, President of America Tamil Sangam, wrote the following on his Facebook page.  

“We are disappointed with you Vikram. We did not invite you to New York to be disrespectful to Indians, keep talking on cell phone and texting without greeting your fans and friends while on the float. He exhibited arrogant behavior laced with attitude when even his co-star Abhishek Bachchan was down-to-earth friendly and shook hands with all his fans.”

“We actually wanted to invite Prabhu Deva but his schedule was clashing. Instead, Vikram put off his fans with his clumsy attitude of not greeting them. Compare this with the previous Tamil grand marshals of the India Day parade in the past - AR Rahman and Sarath Kumar and Radikaa Sarath Kumar, who were down to earth and never got tired of posing for photos or meeting fans and they were literally mobbed unlike some 30 or 40 people who came near Vikram.”

“People still remember Sarath Kumar in New York for his kindness and genuine affection towards people and he never faked. Is he (Vikram) bigger than Sarath Kumar in stature and seniority? And he used the title and insisted on projecting himself as a South Indian superstar. He does not deserve to be invited to any event abroad as he thinks of himself as Rajinikanth and Shah Rukh Khan in popularity. You are not invited in Air India first class ticket to do 'sightseeing’ and indulgence at the cost of hard work to get sponsorship. Shame on you and you brought shame to our country, industry and especially Tamil Nadu with your arrogance, attitude and ego as a star.”
