Super Deluxe is winning hearts among movie buffs but the transgender community from Tamil Nadu is not too pleased with the portrayal. The community has alleged that Super Deluxe shows them in a bad light.
In a scene, Vijay Sethupathi is seen collecting money from a storekeeper to show his son how he made. In another scene. Vijay's character Shilpa admits to kidnapping two children and selling them for money. Later, she found those children at a traffic signal with physical disabilities and resorting to begging.
Now, a few transgenders were quoted as saying. "We had great regards for Vijay Sethupathi, but he has spoilt it by acting in this film. After hearing the script, Vijay Sethupathi should have rejected it.”
They (Transgender Community) questioned, just when this society started respecting our community, such half-baked portrayal ruins everything for us. Today, a lot of transgenders are getting respectable jobs. Now, the Transgender community demands the arrest of Vijay Sethupathi and Super Deluxe director.
