South Superstar and Makkal Needhi Maiam president, Kamal Haasan had recently sparked up a controversy. During a campaign in Aravakurichi, the actor stated that the Independent India's first terrorist was a Hindu and his name was Godse (Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin).

He had clarified his statement that this was not to appeal the Muslim-majority constituency. “I am not saying this because many Muslims are here. I'm saying this in front of Gandhi's statue. The first terrorist post India's independence is a Hindu. His name is Nathuram Godse,” the actor-turned-politician reportedly said.

However, this statement has sparked up a controversy and did not go well with many. One such among them was a popular Bollywood actor, Vivek Oberoi. He took to his Twitter and wrote, “Dear Kamal sir, you are a great artist. Just like art has no religion, terror has no religion either! You can say Ghodse was a terrorist, why would you specify ‘Hindu’? Is it because you were in a Muslim dominated area looking for votes?”

He further wrote, “Please sir, from a much smaller artist to a great one, let’s not divide this country, we are one.” Meanwhile, on the work front, Vivek will be next seen in the biopic ‘PM Narendra Modi” which is directed by Omung Kumar. The film is all set to hit the screens on May 24.
