Radha Ravi makes misogynistic comments against Nayanthara

Veteran Tamil actor Radha Ravi is yet again ruling the headlines after he shamed lady superstar Nayanthara in his speech at an event recently. At the press meet of Nayanthara starrer Kolayuthir Kaalam, Radha Ravi spoke about the actress not attending promotional events and his misogynistic comments caught everyone’s eye. A video of him slamming the actress is doing rounds on the internet in which the veteran actor speaks about how the actress gets paid for the film but doesn't promote her own film.

India Today quoted Radha Ravi saying, "Nayanthara is a star now and she's hailed as Lady Superstar. Some even compared her to Puratchi Thalaivar MGR and Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan. They're immortals and it is disheartening to see people include Nayanthara in the list. I agree that Nayanthara is a good actress and she is sustaining in the industry for several years. There have been several reports about her, yet she stands tall. Tamil Nadu people remember anything only for four days, then they forget. Now, she is a known face. She can act as a ghost and as Goddess Sita as well. Back in those days, if filmmakers have a Goddess character in the film, they'd go for veteran actress KR Vijaya. But now, anybody can play the role. Paatha udane kumbudravangalayum podalam, paatha udane koopadravangalyum podalam (We can cast those who are respected and those who sleep around)."

The actor also made some shocking remarks in which he spoke about a agreement that allows the hero to touch the actress in any way and the audience surprisingly clapped and lauded after his speech. He said, "Nayanthara, of late, acts in horror films. If the ghosts see her in person, they'll run away. I also advised Mathi (Kolayuthir Kaalam's producer and Radha Ravi's son-in-law) to get agreements from artists that they'll attend promotions. Also, another agreement that states that the hero will touch the heroine in any way during a film's shooting and that the latter shouldn't make a big deal of it later."

His speech didn’t do down well with Nayanthara's boyfriend and filmmaker Vignesh Shivan who decided to speak on Radha Ravi's derogatory remarks. He slammed the actor left, right and center saying how jobless Radha Ravi is.
