DMK suspended actor and party leader Radha Ravi citing “indiscipline”, days after he made sexist remarks against actress Nayanthara.
MK general secretary K Anbazhagan initiated disciplinary proceedings against Ravi on March 24.
In the Kolayuthir Kaalam press meet the actor said “Nayanthara has acted as a ghost and as goddess Sita as well. Earlier, K.R. Vijaya was the most popular choice to play the role of a goddess. Today, anyone can be cast to play a goddess. They can cast someone who you want to pray to when you look at them, they can also cast someone you want to call towards you when you see them,”

This created huge outrage in social media among fans and celebrities. Vignesh Shivan, boyfriend of Nayanthara condemned his act by tagging DMK president and Kanimozhi. As a result of which Radha Ravi was suspended from his post.
பெண்ணுரிமை முன்னிறுத்தும் திமுகவில் அங்கம் வகிக்கும் நடிகர் ராதாரவி அவர்களின் திரைத்துறை சார்ந்த பெண் கலைஞர்கள் குறித்த கருத்து ஏற்க இயலாதது. கடும் கண்டனத்திற்குரியது. கழகத்தினர் யாவரும் கண்ணியம் குறையாத வகையில் கருத்துகளை தெரிவிக்க வேண்டும்.மீறுவோர் மீது நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கப்படும். pic.twitter.com/vEM2Eri2zN

He is asking an apology NOW because the actions taken is not in his favor. What is the point of asking sorry when he is not respecting WOMEN.
