Veteran actor Radha Ravi, who was recently caught in a controversy for slutshaming Nayanthara, had earlier expressed regret for his comments.
However, at the launch of a short film this week, he said: “Yes, I said that if anyone felt hurt, convey my regrets to them. I never apologised to anyone, it doesn’t run in my blood. Why should I apologise, have I done a heinous crime?”.
He added: “Today, I’m getting loud cheers from the media and audiences. I also got similar reception at Kolayuthir Kaalam trailer launch. If I speak the truth, people will eventually support.”
He also said: “I loved director Perarasu’s speech today. But he told me not to get afraid because of the recent issue. Why I should afraid of someone? A few say that I will no longer act in cinema. You can’t stop me, what will you do if I start acting in drama/stage play.”
According to Radha Ravi, “Whatever happened to me is not a problem at all, it’s a temporary issue. If you think my speech had enough truth in it, accept it or ignore. Bitter gourd is available in the market, the taste won’t be good but it’s good for health. You can’t ask the shop owner to not sell it. If you hate it, don’t buy.”
