BJP politician H. Raja claimed that there is no Tamil language without Hindu religion in a press meet that took place to promote the upcoming film “Ruthra Thandavam”. He who looked agitated called press reporters as “Presstitutes” for parting Tamil language and Hindu religion. He wanted them not to become the addicts of conversion. Video of his speech is going viral among the Internet users who are condemning the politician for disrespecting media personalities by calling them as “presstitutes”.
Trailer of “Ruthra Thaandavam”, directed by Mohan G of “Draupathy” fame released on You tube recently and receiving reviews from all over the Internet. The 2 minute 51 seconds long trailer shows the protagonist as a police officer who is being accused as a caste-fanatic for the way he handles one of his cases. With Richard playing the lead role, the film’s caste includes Gautham vasudev Menon, Dharsha Gupta, Thambi Ramaiyah, Radha Ravi and others.
The trailer ends with Richard uttering the dialogue, “I was just doing my job. You people made others to say that I am a caste-fanatic. Why are you doing this dirty politics ?”. The film has been censored as U/A and the film is set to release. Considering the recent announcement of government about the 50% occupancy in theatres, the film is schedule to release in theatres from 1st of October.
Now, the promotional events of the film started taking place in the Internet platform. Tamil nadu BJP leader Annamalai watched the movie in the office of Mohan G, according to his recent and other supporters and members of BJP party are also actively involved in promoting the film.
After watching the film, senior BJP member H. Raja met the press reporters and talked about the film. At a point, he who got visibly frustrated, called the press reporters as “presstitutes”. “How can you say that language Tamil emerged without Hindu religion ? This is what I am talking about. You all media people, presstitutes, don’t support religious conversion by saying that Hindu and Tamil is different. Don’t become an addict to conversion” he says in the press meet.
