Denying the rumour of acting as a “Benami” of Vijay, Britto said that Vijay just supported him morally and gave him the call sheet as an actor. “We are not even partners in any business. From the very beginning, we are involved in separate professions. I want to make money on my won and Vijay himself won’t like these kind of “Benami” business” the producer said in the interview. He also denied “Master” getting released in OTT platforms reasoning the high budget.
Talking about the criticism Vijay receiving every now and then regarding his religion, Britto said that Vijay is not a such person as they (critics) are trying portray. “If that is the case, he won’t married a Hindu girl. Even hisfather S.A Chandrasekhar married a Hindu woman as well. Now my daughter is going to marry a Hindu man named as Akash who is a brother of actor Atharvaa. I built temple for Hindus and involved in muslim community as well. I helped every religion in all the possible ways I could do” he said.
Xavier Britto became a subject to online trolls due to the long speech he delivered in the audio launch of “Master”. Many compared his speech with the speech of Christian priests in Churches. Replying to the trolls, Xavier said “It really looked funny to me. I won’t forget the people who helped me in my tough times. I will always be grateful to those who stretched their supportive hand to me. Some of those fathers who helped me came to the audio launch. I thanked them with my whole heart but it was misinterpreted” he said.
