Horror thriller Balloon starring Jai and Anjali is ready for release. However ahead of its release the film’s director is facing backlash after his comments during a press meet.

The director said that directors take inspiration from other films and even his Balloon is a interpretation of other films. He has however given credit to the original makers. He suggested other film makers follow the same. This was perceived by many as a direct attack on director Atlee and Vijay who has done Theri and Mersel with him.

This has irked a lot of Vijay fans who feel a debutante like Sinish should not comment on other talented directors. The director has issued an apology on social media.
