After Samantha, now it is the turn of actresses Tapsee, Richa Chadha and Kushboo to tear into Tamil actor Radha Ravi for his sexist remakes. Actually, at an event last week, Radha Ravi had 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."
Richa Chadha, who has worked recently in the South on a biopic on controversial actress Shakeela, said "Anyone who makes disrespectful comments about women, cannot be excused. Everyday sexism and blatant misogyny have no place in a modern society," she said. Tamil actress Khushboo said: "Radha Ravi's comments were absolutely distasteful. I was shocked by his statement. When men fail at words, they resort to body shaming and character assassinate. (I am) appalled by his words." In her words, Tapsee Pannu said.
"This is disgusting beyond words. Who asked him about casting pre requisites and is he the president of character certificate association? This comes for one of the strongest actresses of the industry. I can only wonder what he might have to say about others."
