It was initially Vignesh Shivan and Chinmayi Sripaada who raised their voices against the actor. The singer was removed from the dubbing council for filing a complaint against Radha Ravi.
During a short film’s launch, the actor said, “Yes, I said that if anyone felt hurt, convey my regrets to them. I never apologized to anyone, it doesn’t run in my blood. Why should I apologize, have I done a heinous crime? Today, I’m getting loud cheers from the media and audiences. I also got similar reception at Kolayuthir Kaalam trailer launch. If I speak the truth, people will eventually support. I loved director Perarasu’s speech today. But he told me not to get afraid because of the recent issue. Why I should afraid of someone? A few say that I will no longer act in cinema. You can’t stop me, what will you do if I start acting in drama/stage play?”
He concluded saying, “Whatever happened to me is not a problem at all, it’s a temporary issue. If you think my speech had enough truth in it, accept it or ignore. Bitter gourd is available in the market, the taste won’t be good but it’s good for health. You can’t ask the shop owner to not sell it. If you hate it, don’t buy.”
How disturbing, right?
Earlier when Chinmayi spoke against these predators existing within the industry, everyone judged her. This is so unfair that a woman constantly needs to struggle in an industry with such disgusting men and when she finally does she would have to undergo character assassination. Why can men simply not let women succeed? Why does it hurt their ego so much so that they have to have an unncessary opinion on a successful woman just to bring her down? Who even cares what their opinion of how a woman should be?
In a disgusting act, the always annoyingly opinionated Radha Ravi slut shames Lady Superstar Nayanthara during the launch of ‘Kolaiyudhir Kaalam’ trailer. ( firstly why was a man with no respect or sense allowed to talk?) He said, “Nayanthara acts as a ghost, and then she goes on to act as Sita as well. She acts as Sita! Earlier, to play the role of a goddess, they would look for [someone like] KR Vijaya. Now, anyone can be cast to play a goddess. They can cast someone who you want to pray to when you look at them, they can also cast someone you want to call towards you when you see them!”
Just look at the audacity with which he uttered rubbish! Also, who asked him about the kind of roles women must do? What’s more grim is the applause he received at the end of the speech. I mean, what even?
He further added, “What is the difference between a big film and a small film? If you rape one girl at once, it is a small film. If you rape 40 people at once, like in Pollachi, it is a big film.”
