Kamal Hassan and Subramanian Swamy embroiled in a proxy war on social media on Monday. The two live just 3kms away but the gap between them is just too long. The BJP Rajya Sabha MP is not happy with Kamal Hassan’s decision to enter politics and lead Tamil Nadu. Amid flurry of tweets, the two have been taking digs at each ther over the political developments in Tamil Nadu. Swamy is clearly not happy with actor Kamal Hassan taking over charge of the people of Tamil Nadu.

Swamy’s Monday’s tweet was an answer to a question asked by someone on Twitter. He was asked if BJP would welcome Kamal if he gets chosen as Tamil Nadu’s next leader. In his reply, the BJP leader said, I don’t know about BJP but I will oppose this boneless wonder+ and pompous i***t called Kamal Haasan.” Swamy’s reponse was too rude but the actor decided not stay mum for this below the belt attack.

The actor said, I have one bone of contention. It’s good enough. Su. Sa called Tamils p****ys. Glad I won’t have to oppose him. People will.” He also mentioned that he would not need to retort Swamy but his own actions would land him in a mess. Kamal added, “He might like his meal boneless. I don’t. Bon appetit sir.” The actors tweets got more that 2000 retweets in a very short span of time.

Kamal Hassan gave one witty reply to the BJP minister, full of sarcasm and wit. The whole controversy began after the actor had tweeted a link on February 18. In his tweet Kamal has shared the speech of Markandey Katju,former Supreme Court judge, with a caption that reads, “Ppl. who hide behind constitution while they hide explosive truths will only implode e.g. su..samy.” (ALSO READ: Superstar Kamal Haasan requests Jallikattu protesters to stay calm)
