Chennai sources reported that the trolls went on to remind him of his daughter Shruti's reported remarks about her caste identity some years ago. Meanwhile Hassan's recent Twitter remarks that he had refused to fill in the caste and religion column in his daughters' school admission certificate, was asked if that alone could end caste issues.



Hassan had tweeted "He refused to fill in the caste and religion column in both his daughters' school admission certificate and that's the only way, it will pass on to the next generation. Every individual should start contributing for progress. Kerala started implementing the same. Those who do should be celebrated”. Moreover a Twitter user uploaded a segment of a TV interview by Shruti Hassan in which she appears to say she was an "Iyengar" (a Brahmin Vaishnavite sect).

Furthermore one user wrote “Start your reform from home sir. Not filling in caste is not a solution, bring the kids up in a way they don't know their caste Hypocrite”. Moreover Shruti had "proudly" identified her father, her sister and herself to be "Iyengar," another Twitter user said, adding "mere removal of the "poonool" (sacred thread-janevu) or tearing apart the caste certificate will not end caste."
