Cricketer Ashwin slams netizens over Vijay death hoax

Chennai, July 29 (IANS) Indian cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin has slammed netizens for misusing Twitter, and spreading false rumours about Tamil superstar Vijay's death.

All through Monday, #RIPVijay and #RIPActorVijay have been trending, and fans of the actor were tensed.

"There was an asteroid that missed hitting our planet a few days ago, irregular monsoons hitting different cities, droughts in many parts of our country and very disturbing criminal cases being spoken, but the young generation of our lovey state manage to trend this #RIPactorVIJAY," Ashwin tweeted.

A section of social media alleged that the hashtags about Vijay's death were created by some fans of rival Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar, taking the hatred game between Tamil matinee idols to another level.

On the film front, Vijay will next be seen in Atlee's film "Bigil".
