However, controversy arose when a video clip from the event began circulating online, allegedly showing Vijay misbehaving by placing his hand on a female student’s shoulder. This clip quickly went viral, leading to questions about the actor’s appropriateness.

This incident highlights how crucial it is to check facts before believing or sharing them, especially now when false information spreads quickly on social media.
