As the entire world is raising voice racism and seeking equality right now, a video clipping of Vijay TV anchor Priyanka Deshpande and TV comedian-cum-actor Dheena is being widely shared among netizens with captions slamming the duo for the way they tried to make fun of Nisha, anchor and comedy actress of the same channel.
Many alleged that their humour is in bad taste and they could only get a feel of irritation instead of laughter. In the video clipping, Priyanka who holds the camera asks Dheena why they are saying that love is blind. Dheena replied by saying that the fact it is true. He turns Nisha who is standing aside forcefully towards the camera and says “Ithukku la Kaathal Kalyanam Nadantha . . Kaathalukku Kann illa nu Thaana Arththam ?” (An ugly looking woman like this managed to get love marriage, then it means “love is blind” right ?) Priya responds by giving a handshake to Dheena saying “You are absolutely right. Sorry”

Time and again Dhina and Vijay Tv is making fun of people in the name of color and fat shaming celebs”

This nonsense is exactly what I’ve spoken about before. This is shaming of all sorts and not just this unfunny Instagram story sketch, but the same bullshit happens on their channel as well. It’s so unfortunate and pathetic. https://t.co/6ei7vnpjwd— Anirudh Sriraman (@AnirudhSriraman) June 6, 2020

Days ago, George Floyd, a black man was died after four police officers handcuffed him and pinned him to the ground with their knees. A video of the arrest surfaced online where he can be seen pleading the officers to let him breathe. George was pinned down by the neck by a Minneapolis police officer and died. He laid there, fighting for his life, struggling to breathe, and other officers just stood there and watched.
This incident created huge outrage across the world where people started raising voicing supporting black people. An hashtag saying “Black lives matter” trended in Internet to prevent racism in future. Now, this video from the Vijay tv stars who casually threw shade on people who looks black triggered netizens in big time. Comment your views !!
