DMK suspended actor and party leader Radha Ravi for his misogynistic comments on actress Nayanthara. On Sunday, DMK general secretary K Anbazhagan initiated disciplinary proceedings against Ravi .
“Nayanthara is a star now and she is 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,” he said.
He added, ” Now, she (Nayanthara) is a known face. She can act as a ghost and as Goddess Sita as well. Back in those days, if filmmakers had 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).”
