Veteran actor Radha Ravi has hit the headlines once again over his controversial speech at a recent event. The actor recently attended as the chief guest to the press meet of Nayanthara starrer Kolayuthir Kaalam. However, his filthy speech has caught everyone’s attention and the video of the same has taken over Twitter. Netizens have been tearing him apart over his derogatory words against Nayanthara, who wasn't present at the event. To people who don’t know, Nayanthara doesn't attend promotional events and speaking about the same, Radha Ravi said that how the actress gets paid for the film but doesn't promote her own film.

India Today quoted Radha Ravi saying, "Nayanthara is a star now and she's 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. Now, she is a known face. She can act as a ghost and as Goddess Sita as well. Back in those days, if filmmakers have 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)."

Shockingly, audience present there clapped over his distasteful statement, "Nayanthara, of late, acts in horror films. If the ghosts see her in person, they'll run away." That’s not all; the veteran actor also mocked the #MeToo movement. He said, "I also advised Mathi (Kolayuthir Kaalam's producer and Radha Ravi's son-in-law) to get agreements from artists that they'll attend promotions. Also, another agreement that states that the hero will touch the heroine in any way during a flm's shooting and that the latter shouldn't make a big deal of it later."

Nayanthara's boyfriend and filmmaker Vignesh Shivan decided to speak on Radha Ravi's derogatory remarks. He slammed the actor left, right and centre saying how jobless Radha Ravi is. Check out his tweets below:

Chinmayi Sripaada also slammed Radha Ravi and requested Nadigar Sangam to take action for 'abusing a successful female actor on stage.'
