In a recent turn of events, young Tamil filmmaker and independent music proponent Vignesh Shivn got the spotlight trained on him. The writer-lyricist-director shared an Instagram video, in which he was seen stoking tension in the matter.

In the video, Vignesh can be seen practicing firing gun at a shooting range. The filmmaker captioned his post as: "Ready to Shoot 'em all. 6 out of 9 on target!! Mood right now is! What is the procedure to join the Army." (sic)

Vignesh is known face in the Tamil film circuit and is currently in a relationship with actress Nayanthara, the queen of Tamil cinema. They fell in love while working on the film, Naanum Rowdy Dhaan, a 2015 black-comedy that Vignesh wrote and directed.

In the past, he has been associated with projects involving Tamil industry celebrities like Simbu, Dhanush and Anirudh Ravichander, as well as helming independent music videos.

Others from the Indian film fraternity are also expressing concern, in the aftermath of the terror attack that took place in Kashmir. They have, however, taken up measures to allay fears by volunteering to help out the families of the slain CRPF jawans.
