In 2017, critics protested Vijay's film Arjun Reddy (2017). The YSR Congress Party filed a complaint against the "obscene" nature of the film and posters showing Arjun and co-star Shalini Pandey sharing a hot moment.

Leader of the National Federation of Indian Women also protested the film as it was derogatory to women and harmful to the youth. Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was also asked to watch and ban the film.

The wing leader of the Andra Pradesh Congress Party womanSunkara Padma Sree also stated that "in a bid to make a profit, they have humiliated women and portrayed them in obscene ways. Huge posters with lipstick are annoying in city buses and public places. In some scenes in the film women were portrayed as stupid puppets."

According to the head of Congress, V Hanumanatha Rao, Vijay tore a poster of him off an RTC bus and went on social media and wrote the words "Thathayya, Chill" (Thathayya means "grandpa" in English). Despite the ongoing disruption, the film grossed an astonishing INR 510 million.

A second controversy, similar to the first, also caused a stir when Vijay and actress Rashmika Mandanna locked their lips in the film Geetha Govindam (2018). Critics had also compared Vijay to Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi.
