A viral audio voice note claiming to be that of actor Vijay's is currently being spread on social media, and it contains a voice statement that owing to the resurged Cauvery water dispute between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, and the treatment meted out to Tamil actor Siddharth in Bengaluru, actor Vijay's October 19 release Leo will not be screening in Karnataka. This voice note is fake and has been debunked as AI generated.
Exclusive audio from #Vijay Anna for supporting Tamilnadu farmers. If it's true 2026 going to be really big 😳😳😳 #CMVijay #CauveryIssue #VijayWarnsKarnataka #leo #VidaaMuyarchi#Thala #Ajithkumar pic.twitter.com/oK48rpXuPj— அஜீத் விக்னேஷ் 🇸🇬 (@iamthalavignesh) September 29, 2023
The AI generated voice also issues a warning that in the event of Karnataka and Kannadigas resurging the Cauvery water dispute and going against Tamil Nadu again and again, the neighbouring state will face 'very big consequences' in 2026 [The year aligns with Vijay's anticipated entry into politics].
