Veteran actor Radha Ravi who is known for his misogynistic comments once again delivered a sleaze speech against Nayanthara and an insensitive joke on the ongoing Pollachi issue. Ironically, Radha Ravi slut shamed the actress at the trailer launch of her own film ‘Kolayuthir Kaalam’.

“Someone who spoke here compared Nayanthara with MGR and Sivaji Ganesan. Please don’t do that, they are legendary actors and immortal. Yes, her films are running well but that doesn’t mean we can compare Nayanthara with legendary names. But I appreciate Nayanthara for her longevity in the industry despite various controversies, thanks to our people who forget things easily”, said Radha Ravi.

“In those days, only KR Vijaya played goddesses in Tamil films but Nayanthara plays Seetha and also plays a ghost. These days, someone whom we respect and whom we ogle at can play goddesses”, said Radha Ravi and thus indirectly passed a bad joke on Nayanthara for her glamorous image in the past.

The veteran actor also said that producers should mention two things while signing a heroine — they should be present for promotions and they shouldn’t complain saying that heroes or costars touched them inappropriately. Talking about Pollachi issue, Radha Ravi said that people don’t have a better job to do than watching the leaked videos. “If there are 110 passengers in a bus, except driver and conductor, everyone is glued to their mobile phones watching Pollachi videos”, said Radha Ravi.

Though two representatives of Producers Council—SS Durai Raj and Praveen Kanthi were there, they didn’t speak against Radha Ravi for his misogynistic comments on Nayanthara, heroines and the insensitive joke on Pollachi issue.

Singer Chinmayi, director Vignesh ShivN, and many journalists have condemned Radha Ravi for his obscene comments on actresses. 

"Been waiting since yesterday for *some* sort of a condemnation from the male actor fraternity in Tamilnadu since yesterday.In this video Radha Ravi, President, TN Dubbing Union openly slut shames a female actor at HER movie’s trailer launch.And not. a. word from anyone. Yet", tweeted Chinmayi.

"Clueless and helpless cos no one will support or do anything or take any action against that filthy piece of shit coming from a legendary family .. he keeps doing this to seek attention! Brainless !  Sad to see audience laughing& clapping for his filthy comments! None of us had any idea that this event was going to take place for an incomplete film .. the actual producers or directors left the film few years back I guess! Inappropriate event wit unnecessary people sitting and knowing not what to speak ! If this is called promoting a movie.hen it’s good to stay away from such events which don’t have any need but jus to give opportunities like this for jobless people to vomit some senseless , useless stuff on stage ! 

Anyways no one from Nadigar sangam or any sangam will take any action against him #Sad #state", tweeted Vignesh ShivN
