Vikram was invited as a chief guest at the 36th India Day Parade in New York and Mr. Swamy reveals his disappointment through a facebook post suggesting the actor was obnoxious and a shame to the Indian film industry!
Here’s what Mr. Swamy had to say through his facebook post.
‘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.
