Nayanthara on director Suraaj’s anti-women remarks: Heroines are not strippers

MUMBAI: Director Suraaj, who’s known for making masala films, has been receiving a lot of flak for his sexist and misogynist remark on heroines. In a recent interview to an independent YouTube channel, Suraaj went on the record saying that heroines should act in glamorous roles as they receive ‘remuneration’ for that. Adding fuel to the fire, Suraaj also said that heroines have to ‘satisfy’ the B and C centres by wearing short clothes. Speaking about his comments, Nayanthara was quoted by Sify as saying, “How can a responsible person from film industry make such a crass and cheap comment? Who is Suraj to say such a derogatory statement against heroines? Does he think that heroines are strippers who will come and shed their clothes just because they are paid money? Will he dare to speak such things about working women in his family?” Actor Tamannaah, who acted in the director’s Kaththi Sandai, took to Twitter and slammed the director for his misogynist comments. Suraaj, who worked as an assistant director to Sundar C, made his directorial debut with Moovendhar. His Thalainagaram, Marudhamalai and Padikathavan were surprise hits at the box office. His recent Kaththi Sandai opened to poor reception from the audience.
