Days after he was criticised for his comments on the Sabarimala issue, Vijay Sethupathi has now come under criticism after it was claimed that he spoke against Bhagavad Gita.
However, the actor has issued a statement, stating that he did not demean the holy book of Hindus. “My dear people. Not only Bhagavad Gita, I didn’t demean any holy books and will never do in the future,” he said.
The ‘Sethupathi’ and ‘Vikram Vedha’ actor added: “Some anti-social elements have spread this rumor. In any situation, I will not speak anything which will affect the unity and faith of my people”.
Recently, comments made by Vijay Sethupathi over the Sabarimala row did not go down well with his fans and general public. In a recent media interaction in Kerala, the actor backed the stand of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in the Sabarimala issue, and added that he is a fan of the communist leader.
“The Chief Minister is right on the Sabarimala issue. I don’t understand why there is so much ruckus about it. Women have to bear certain pain every month,” he was quoted as saying.
“We all know why it happens it is a holy thing thanks to which we are here… if there’s no menstruation, there won’t be any men. Hence women are equivalent to Gods,” he added.
