“Using so much of bad words is ethically wrong but the entire story revolves around a single man who faced only bad things in his life. So, it could be told only in that way. If we are visiting a slum, we could hear only the bad words. We couldn’t cheat just because we are making a cinema. People know how they would talk in that area” Brigida said to the press.
“Bad words couldn’t be avoided in the film as the maker thought of showing it as raw as possible” she added. Statement from the young actress didn’t go well with a number of online users who thought that the people from slum area are being demeaned and generalized.

Quoting the tweet, Director Parthiban said “I am also asking apology on behalf of Brigida to the people who got hurt. This is a story that takes place in the year 1989. The change brought by the people of slum came from their education which they got through severe struggle. Most of my films are about slum people becoming hero” through his reply tweet.
Brigida சார்பாக நானும் மன்னிப்பு கேட்டுக் கொள்கிறேன் மனக்காயம் அடைந்தவர்களிடம்.1989-ல் நடக்கும் கதையிது.2022-ல் சேரி மக்களிடம் உள்ள மாற்றம்,கடுமையான போராட்டத்தில் அவர்கள் பெற்ற கல்வியினால்.என் படங்கள் பெரும்பாலும் சேரி மக்களை hero ஆக்குவதே! https://t.co/NSq3LNaYt7
