Veteran actor Radha Ravi created quite a stir with his controversial comments against actress Nayanthara. While the whole Tamil film industry is silent about the same, there are some celebrities who came out and spoke their mind out. Rang De Basanti star Siddharth who is known to share his thoughts on every relevant topic took to Twitter and reacted to the controversy surrounding actor Radha Ravi's derogatory remarks against actress Nayanthara. "I was shocked that my entire fraternity was either silent or cynical about the #MeToo movement. I silently rued the fact that it would take only the anger of a powerful woman to make the sleeping wake up. If you speak up only when your own are affected, it's not called bravery," Siddharth tweeted on Sunday night.

However, Siddharth later deleted some tweets saying that his tweets failed to communicate what he felt clearly. He tweeted, "My last tweets fail to communicate what I feel clearly, owing to me needing more words to clarify them. I'm deleting them out of respect to women and survivors. There is no need for muddled statements from men like me at this stage. The #metoo movement is more important. Sorry."
