After a scandalous Kamal Haasan-starring comedy act went viral, Vijay TV's top comedians Prema and Qureshi apologized. Haasan's fans were shocked by his 'offensive' comedy act in Dubai.

Qureshi questioned Prema, who impersonated Kamal Haasan, in the skit. All the questions and answers were hilarious and favoured Bigg Boss contestant Maya. When asked about his favourite area in Chennai, Qureshi said "By Maya," and when asked about his favourite film, "Maya Bazaar." This felt like an attempt to tie Haasan's tastes to Maya's, which caught the attention of his supporters, who were crazy about him.

The spoof went popular online and sparked a backlash. The fan expressed dismay and disgust of the comedians linking Haasan to Maya, especially since he did not consent.

Prema and Qureshi released apology tapes after the uproar. For fun and amusement, they believed this skit showed their appreciation for Haasan. They admitted that his fans were saddened and apologized.

Despite sounding honest, these apologies did not satisfy angry supporters. Some are still hurt by the skit, which shows how careful one must be around superstars. This incident shows how social media can turn every joke into a controversy.

There will be proof of whether the "I'm sorry" statements completely heal the rift with Kamal Haasan's fans. However, the episode warns performers to consider the implications of their activities, especially in the digital age.
