Controversies • Accused Sumanth C. Raman of encouraging caste-based discrimination
In November 2022, Vikraman accused Sumanth C. Raman, a Tamil television anchor and sports commentator, of biased behavior and unfair treatment towards people based on their caste. Vikraman took to Twitter and revealed that when he went to Sumanth’s house for an interview, he asked for a glass of water, but his demand was neglected even after several requests. His tweet read,
When I came to your house to interview you, you sent me back without even giving me a glass of water. When I asked for it to you myself, you suggested me to receive water from the watchman. Why is that ??”
Sumanth denied the allegations made against him by Vikraman and demanded to withdraw his baseless statement along with an apology. Vikraman replied to his tweet, which read,
Even two cameramen were accompanying me at that time. Don’t threaten a journalist. Our truth will triumph.”
Sumanth even threatened Vikraman to take legal action against him, to which he replied with a tweet,
I am not going to fear this kind of gimmick. The truth will triumph.” [5]• Accused of sexually harassing a man
As per sources, in April 2021, Vikraman was accused of sexually molesting a man, who came to his place to give an audition. Addressing Vikraman as a gay, the victim revealed that he promised to help him in getting roles for the films, but instead, harassed him. He shared the incident with a meme page on Instagram and said,
He called me in the name of audition to a house and made me act. Then he pushed me to the bed and sexually harassed me. I couldn’t do anything at that time. His friends later called and scolded him. He put away my shirt in a cupboard and locked it. I had to struggle to get my shirt back from him. He later begged me to not disclose this incident to anyone and that he would help me get a chance in films. Then he blocked me. I couldn’t do anything as many told me that he has many political connections and knows several bigshots. They told me that I won’t be able to do anything to him.” [6]

• Addressed as anti-Hindu
During a debate on the English news channel Times Now, in June 2022, Vikraman was accused of offending and hurting the religious sentiments of people by insulting the Hindu God Lord Krishna. Vikraman passed a derogatory statement about Lord Krishna’s immoral relationship with Gopis (devotees of Krishna) in a young age. Vikraman said,
Krishna’s young age life was full of illicit love affairs with the women of Vrindavan. It was called Rasleela.” [7]
People heavily criticized Vikraman for passing such a disrespectful statement on a Hindu god and addressed him as anti-Hindu. [8] Rahul Easwar, a Hindu philosophy author, lashed out at him for passing offensive remarks and said,
Shri Krishna’s relationship with the Gopis was not illicit but was a spiritual bond. Making such remarks about Hindu Deities is nothing but Hinduphobia. In this way, people try to belittle Hindu culture and beliefs. They make vulgar and offensive statements.” [9]

• FIR filed for passing provocative remarks
