    Disappointed To See Raadhika Being Insulted In 'Dharma Durai': Sarathkumar

    |

    Was Raadhika Sarathkumar, one of the finest actresses Tamil cinema has ever seen, insulted by the makers of Vijay Sethupathi's Dharma Durai, which had her playing a key role?

    That's exactly what veteran actor and politician Sarathkumar has said, much to the surprise of many.

    Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, producer RK Suresh has said it was unintentional and that he didn't mean to disrespect the veteran actress. "It was unintentional. I would say that it was actually a technical fault. I have full respect for Radhikaa madam."

    "In fact, not one poster I released during promotion was without madam's (Raadhika) picture. If it hurt her or Sarath sir in any way, I offer my sincere apologies," Suresh told the leading daily.

    Director Seenu Ramasamy too, said he is an admirer of Raadhika's acting skills and that the placement of her name was done inadvertently.

    "I am a great admirer of Radhikaa madam's acting and have high regards for her. I tried roping her for my earlier film 'Thenmerkku Paruva Kaattru' for which I waited an entire year, Seenu told DC.

    National Award recipient Seenu Ramasamy has taken up the responsibility and rightly so. It was I who told the assistants to put the senior actors' names together. It was done inadvertently, without any hurtful intent," he has said.

    Meanwhile, Dharma Durai is said to be doing well in theatres across Tamil Nadu. It was reported that the movie had collected close to 5.6 Crore rupees from its opening weekend.

    "Started watching 'dharmadurai', disappointing to see a senior artist Radika being insulted in the tittle card hope seniors are respected (sic)," Sarathkumar wrote on his official Twitter page.

    Apparently, while rolling out the movie's title card, Raadhika's name had appeared after displaying the names of relatively new actors and actresses.

    Dharma Durai had an ensemble cast of Tamannaah Bhatia, Aishwarya Rajesh and Shrusti Dange among others. While Tamannaah and Aishwarya played lead roles along with Vijay Sethupathi, Raadhika was seen playing Vijay's mother.

    Though disappointed with the placement of his wife's name, Sarathkumar had good things to say about the movie as a whole.

    "'Dharmadurai' is a lovely film, a must see, screen play narration and forward thinking emotional film, Radika, Vijay, Bhaskar, Aishwarya and the entire crew, music score and the director superb and extraordinary. Congrats to Producer Suresh for selecting the script, congrats," he had said.
