Radha-Ravi-comments-on-Nayanthara

With #MeToo movement gaining so much attention, a person is always under the scanner and even a single derogatory comment can put you in trouble. But the question of the hour is – have things really changed for women? A recent incident that happened during the trailer launch of South film Kolayuthil Kalaam has raised many eyebrows once again. For those unaware, let us tell you that Radha Ravi had made a sexist remark against actress Nayanthara saying, “She plays a ghost in Tamil films and the goddess Sita in Telugu movies. In my days, we would cast actresses like KR Vijaya to play the role of Sita. Today, anybody can play Sita. You can cast a person, whom you respect or someone who sleeps around.”

The politician received severe backlash for the same and many celebrities also criticised him. But the veteran actor doesn’t really care. He is back at it and had this to say on the issue: “Yes, I had said that if I had hurt anyone, I would like to convey my regrets to them (Nayanthara). I have never apologised to anyone and it doesn’t run in my blood. Why should I apologise? Did I commit a serious crime?”

“Today, I am getting loud cheers from audience and media people. I got a similar reception that day as well. If I speak the truth, people will eventually support me. Whatever happened to me is not even a big issue, it is all temporary. If my speech had enough truth in it, accept it, otherwise ignore it,” he added.

Actress Nayanthara also couldn’t help but talk about the incident. She said, “As an actor of considerable seniority and work experience, Mr Radha Ravi should have led the younger generation by example, instead he has chosen to take up the role of a ‘misogynist’ role model. These are troubled times for women as women are establishing themselves predominantly in every field of public life and asserting their due place in this era of meritocracy.”

Actors like Radhika Sarathkumar, Vignesh Shivn, Chinmayi, Vishal and many others had openly denounced Radha Ravi’s comments as well. For more updates on this front and latest entertainment news, stay tuned to CineBlitz.
