Senior actor Sivakumar found himself in a big controversy after he slammed down the mobile phone of a fan who tried taking a selfie with him. The actor had to apologize to the fan, and had even bought him a new phone to settle down the issue. Netizens went to the next level of trolling the actor after he happened to repeat the same thing, few weeks after the incident.
Actress Kasthuri Shankar, who was the anchor for the audio launch of July Kaatril, took a selfie with the chief guest Karthi before he went up to speak, by saying, “Since your dad is not around, let me take a selfie with you.” This comment miffed the actor, who immediately went to the mic and addressed the issue. “It’s needless to pull this up here. Respect doesn’t exist at all. These days, people don’t even realize that it is not right to take selfies without prior permission. Cameras have flashlights at the front and the back, how do people with migraine deal with that?” asked the actor, referring to his father.
Later on, Kasthuri took to Twitter and covered up the issue saying that it was deliberately done to make the event go viral. While few people have agreed to her publicity stunt, the actress has been at the receiving end of many negative comments on social media.Read More
