The picture of Atlee and Shah Rukh Khan sitting next to each other went viral and many were curious to know if both will be working on their next project together.
However, some people, instead of focusing on the duo's possible venture, started trolling Atlee for his dark skin colour.
Why colour-based remarks are not new for Atlee
Atlee is a famous director who made his Kollywood debut via the superhit 'Raja Rani' and directed Thalapathy Vijay's Mersal and Theri.
The award-winning director married lovely actress cum TV host Krishna Priya in the year 2014 but was trolled for his dark complexion compared to her lighter skin tone. He was mocked for posting a selfie with his newly-wedded wife back then.
Now, social media is being harsh again, trolling Atlee for the exact same reason over his picture with Shah Rukh Khan.
It's sad that some people still determine a person's worth by their skin colour and not their achievements. Despite the despicable trolls, many have come in support of the director! Here's what they tweeted:
Myself being mostly dark, I feel bad for the trolls that #Atlee has to go through when he makes public appearances. #Priya should be proud that her hubby has reached a height that to sit besides #SRK is no less feat. pic.twitter.com/aDsAIm8OJ2— ?Pravs? (@filmsnut) April 9, 2019
No one will match to what #Atlee has achieved today. He's really showed color does'nt matter. Even kids know who Atlee is. No wonder Ajith's hair also turned to the color his fans love the most.— sivaranjani gopinath (@ranjani_gopi) April 9, 2019
Even Kamalhaasan is white but his fans never made racist remarks about Rajni, no matter how extreme their fight goes. Because it shows the character of people, the learning of vice and virtue and the dos and don'ts. What a waste of school education, Ajith fans!! #Atlee— George AB Addict (@VijayIsMyLife) April 9, 2019

Y’all making fun of Atlee’s skin colour well at least he got to sit beside SRK by his own hardwork. What have you achieved other than sitting at your home commenting about his skin colour? #Atlee #CSKvKKR— Yaaro ? (@lostsoulheree) April 9, 2019
