The Tamil film – Kaththi Sandai – released last Friday and is now in the news for the feud between its lead actress and director. Tamannaah Bhatia, who is a household name down South, lashed out at director Suraj for his comments on her, and actresses in general. Suraj stated that all an actress has to do is look glamorous, and no one would ever want to see Bhatia in a sari. The Baahubali 2 actress didn't take this lightly and put out a tweet, criticising the director.
Bhatia also found support in Nayanthara, another popular Kollywood actress. Since there was a lot of backlash on social media, Suraj apologized for his remarks and claimed that he had no intention of degrading the actress. We salute Tamannaah Bhatia for taking on the director of her own film, and hope other actresses start speaking out about the harsh realities of the male-dominated industry, too.
