Mumbai: Unlike the earlier times, when the entire industry would stay silent when it comes to supporting an actor against the big fishes of the industry, actors have started coming to each other’s support. The latest example of which is Taapsee Pannu who stood up against South Indian actor Radha Ravi for making distasteful comments on actress Nayanthara.
Making sexually charged comments against Nayanthara, Radha Ravi said, “In the film, Nayanthara acts as a ghost and then she goes on to act as Sita as well. She acts as Sita! Earlier, to play the role of a goddess, they would look for [someone like] KR Vijaya. Now, anyone can be cast to play a goddess. They can cast someone who you want to pray to when you look at them, they can also cast someone you want to call towards you when you see them!”
Ravi has been receiving a lot of flak from the film industry in the South. Actress Taapsee Pannu too questioned his comments on social networking site Twitter.
“This is disgusting beyond words. Who asked him about casting prerequisites and is he the president of character certificate association? This comes for one of the strongest actresses of the industry, I can only wonder what he might have to say about others,” tweeted Taapsee....
