At the premiere of the trailer for her film, veteran Tamil actor Radha Ravi once called Nayanthara a slut. She responded as.
One of the most well-known actresses in the South Indian cinema business is Nayanthara. She is renowned for making audacious and progressive choices in cinema roles that go against preconceptions and cultural norms. She regularly deviates from the conventional representations of women in Indian movies by playing strong, independent female characters.
The actress, who comes from a modest background, has worked hard to establish herself as one of the most prominent and successful film figures. She has, nevertheless, endured her fair share of controversy and criticism. Did you know that a seasoned Tamil actor once called her a sl*t?
At the Kolaiyuthir Kaalam trailer debut in 2019, veteran actor Radha Ravi gave a speech. The actress, however, did not attend the function. The movie had been directed by her then-partner and current husband, Vignesh Sivan.

In the past, they would search for [someone like] KR Vijaya to play the part of a goddess. Anybody can now be chosen for a goddess role. In addition to casting someone you want to summon towards you when you see them, they may also cast someone you want to pray to when you look at them. making a s**xually suggestive remark in an effort to humiliate the actress.
In response to Radha Ravi’s anti-feminist sentiments, the Jawan actress later ended her quiet. After feeling “compelled to issue a detailed statement to clarify my own position and also to champion the cause of women who bear the brunt of male insensitivities and s*xism,” she released a statement. Additionally, she addressed Nadigar Sangam and questioned when the group would establish an internal complaints committee to handle situations like these. She further continued by inquiring as to whether Radha Ravi would be the subject of an investigation in accordance with Vishaka rules.
Nayanthara’s statement read, “At the outset, I would like to remind Mr. Radha Ravi and the likes of misogynists like him that they were also given birth by a woman. By demeaning the status of women and passing sexist remarks, these retarded men get a feeling of machismo. I feel terribly sorry for the way they treat women in an opinionated way and my empathy remains with all the women who live in the families of these ‘macho’ men. As an actor of considerable seniority and work experience, Mr. Radha Ravi should have led the younger generation by example, instead, he has chosen to take up the role of a “misogynist” role model. These are troubled times for women as women are establishing themselves predominantly in every field of public life and asserting their due place in this era of meritocracy. When actors like Mr Radha Ravi fall out of business and become irrelevant, they tend to rely on cheap popularity tactics in order to grab some limelight
