Highlights

  1. Uncle TR voiced his thoughts at the function, said Venkat Prabhu
  2. "So still you are supporting TR for this issue, wow,' said one user
  3. Celebs like Vishal condemned T Rajendar's behavior
Actor filmmaker T Rajendar's tirade against actress Dhanshika during a press conference during the promotion of upcoming film Vizhithiru has not gone down well with the Internet and celebrities. The fact that Dhanshika 'smale co-stars Venkat Prabhu, Vidharth and Krishna sniggered and clapped while T Rajendar criticized Dhanshika for failing to mention his name while thanking her team infuriated everyone further. On Saturday, after a severe backlash on Twitter, Venkat Prabhu released a statement, in which he said that when what he thought was 'teasing' turned into 'something serious,' he was 'caught off guard.' Venkat Prabhu also said: "Dhanshika is an industry freshie with little experience in public speaking. I believe it is the responsibility of us seniors to guide." Twitter thinks that Venkat Prabhu, instead of accepting his mistake and apologizing for clapping while T Rajendar schooled Dhanshika, is blaming the actress. "So still you are supporting TR for this issue, wow," wrote one user in comments while another added: "Can't accept your apology."

This is Venkat Prabhu's statement:
 

And here are some reactions it received:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dhanshika, who played Rajinikanth's daughter in Kabali, gained the support of actor Vishal, who is also the general secretary of South Indian Cine Artistes' Association. In a Facebook post he wrote: "I know Dhanshika very well and the people who know her know well that she wouldn't have done anything like this intentionally. I strongly condemn Mr TR for continuously targeting Dhanshika despite the fact that she apologised to him and he could have avoided all this."
 
 
 


Vishal, who is also the president of Tamil Film Producers Council, wrote a separate Facebook post to rebuke Dhanshika's other two co-stars, Vidharth and Krishna, who were present at the press conference. "I think you guys should have had the least bit of decency not to clap when your own co-star was being bullied," he wrote.
 
 
 


On Friday, Dhanshika thanked everyone who supported her and said: "But it is a pity, this is state of lone women."
 

On Thursday, at a press meet for Vizhithiru, Dhanshika thanked all her co-stars but failed to mention T Rajendar's name - the actor has a special song appearance in the Meera Kathiravan-directed film. T Rajendar took this personally and targeted Dhanshika saying, "You are not wearing a sari, so I do not want your sorry." He also felt the need to remind Dhanshika that she made Vizhithiru before starring in Rajinikanth's Kabali.

Vizhithiru releases on October 6.
