Bollywood has been a target of netizens for quite some time now. The kind of movies they are making, what their kids are doing, the audience, who are known to voice their opinions, are cursing the industry left, right and centre. Ahead of the release of Shahid Kapoor’s film Jersey, we saw it trending on Twitter as well. Netizens took to social media to trend #BoycottJersey for strange reasons. Netizens criticized the actor for insulting SSR once at an award function.
Well this is not the first time that such a hashtag is trending on social media. I still remember the time when Deepika Padukone’s film Chhapaak faced such severe criticism on social media.
Not only movies but also Bollywood stars and star kids often fall prey to trolls and criticism for having a sibling and being launched in the industry by their godfather or wearing ‘revealing’ and ‘inappropriate’ clothes. But when it comes to the South film industry, things are completely different. We often see netizens in awe of South superstars like Rajinikanth, Yash, Ram CharanChiranjeevi and many others are trending him on social media.
Seeing the audience slowly shifting from Bollywood to South, we often wonder what could be the reason for this? Is it because South stars are closer to their roots? Well, that’s the only reason we can think of. If you’re confused as to what we’re talking about, read on.
Recently, actor R Madhavan’His son Vendat Madhavan created buzz in the city after securing a gold medal in swimming at the Denmark Open 2022. Soon after, the proud father shared the moment on social media and netizens couldn’t help but pour all their love into the actor and his son, unlike other star kids.
Apart from this, Ram Charan also caught everyone’s attention when he and his father Chiranjeevi were seen walking barefoot for the duration of Ayyappa initiation of 41 days. In this tradition, every devotee of Swami Ayyappa wears black clothes and walks barefoot before going to the Sabarimala temple in Kerala. Soon after his pictures surfaced on the web, netizens called him the ‘real hero’.
How can we forget the first Kuchipudi dance recital of superstar Mahesh Babu’s daughter Sitara on the occasion of Ramnavmi. The proud father took to social media to share the happy moments that we have brought for you as well.

Another example of the same is Yash’s down-to-earth nature. On the occasion of Ugadi, the KGF star was seen sitting on the ground with her son, dressed in traditional attire and eating on a banana leaf.
Well, these are just a few examples that we think fans have always attached themselves to. Believe it or not, we think it is just the South Star’s deep roots that keep him grounded. Don’t you agree?
