<p> <em>Kaththi Sandai</em> director Suraaj in a recent interview derogated heroines by claiming that they are here to act as glam queen. Looks like this has not gone well with Tamannaah, who has issued a strongly worded statement against the director.<br /> <br /> &ldquo;This 2016 and it&#39;s very ironic that I had to leave a film like Dangal in the middle which on woman empowerment to tackle this issue. I am very hurt and angered by the comments made by my director Suraaj and I would definitely want him to apologise not only to me but to the entire women in the industry. We are actors and are here to act and entertain the audience and should not at any point be objectified as commodities. I have been working in the South Industry for over 11 years and have worn costumes, which I have been comfortable with. It is sad that women in our country are spoken about so frivolously and I would like to tell my audience that out industry should not be generalised due to comments made by one such individual,&rdquo; she wrote in the statement.</p>
