The entire film industry stood against the actors illicit comments. The Party DMK lifted him off his post for his audacious comments and now Radha Ravi is now a part of BJP. On the political campaign stage, Radha Ravi has once again taken up Nayanthara’s name and has slut-shamed her yet again.
Radha Ravi while attacking another political party, said that he doesn’t care if Nayanthara and actor turned politican Udhayanidhi are in a relationship.
In 2019, Nayanthara had sent out a strong-worded statement condemning Radha Ravi’s act.
#RadhaRavi the star campaigner of B.J.P hasn’t learned his lesson nor would never learn I suppose… He yet again shames #Nayanthara in a stage!!
I wonder how can he get away with such disgusting, disgraceful, ill talks on one of South India’s biggest actors…!! https://t.co/cwFsEFPuub pic.twitter.com/7hia5FfVDU

In her statement, Nayanthara said, “At the outset, I would like to remind Mr.Radha Ravi and the likes of misogynists like him that they were also given birth by a woman. By demeaning the status of women and passing sexist remarks, these retarded men get a feeling of machismo. I feel terribly sorry for the way they treat women in an opinionated way and my empathy remains with all the women who live in the families of these ’macho’ men. 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. When actors like Mr.Radha Ravi fall out of business and become irrelevant, they tend to rely on cheap popularity tactics in order to grab some limelight.”
“What remains ghastly shocking about his male chauvinistic speeches are that he never ceases to get applause and laughs from some members of the audience. As long as the audience encourage sexist remarks, speakers like Mr.Radha Ravi will continue to thrive on misogyny and cracking of denigrating jokes against women. I strongly urge well intentioned citizens and my beloved fans to deeply discourage the behaviour of the likes of Mr.Radha Ravi. Not withstanding the aforesaid advisory, through this statement I would like to strongly register my condemnation and protest against the derogatory speeches made by Mr.Radha Ravi against women and children in general and me in specific.”
