A major controversy since Saturday (23.03.2019) at the trailer launch for Nayanthara’s Kolaiyuthir Kaalam has been veteran actor Radha Ravi’s inappropriate statements against the film’s lead star, Nayanthara.

The event took a major detour when Radha Ravi spoke and used questionable language against Nayanthara, which can be seen below:

With many in the film industry as well as people from various walks of life issuing criticism and condemnation against Radha Ravi for his words against Nayanthara, the senior actor has now issued a statement saying his standpoint has been misunderstood.

That said, Radha Ravi has now issued a fresh statement saying, “Since we are all part of the same film industry, I did not make the statement against anybody specifically. I never said anything wrong and the press and media would have condemned me at the spot had I spoken in a questionable manner. I believe I did not speak anything wrong.”

Radha Ravi then went on to address both Nayanthara and director Vignesh Shivan saying, “I feel heartfelt disappointment and bad for my comments as they belong to my field of work. I’m willing to talk to them in person and I have no hesitation to convey this message across.”

Furthermore, Radha Ravi has stated he is willing to quit his position from the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) after the party leader M. K. Stalin temporarily suspended him.
