T Rajendar, father of popular actor Simbu, made actor Dhansika cry onstage.

Kabali actor Dhansika was insulted by T Rajendar on stage during the press meet of their upcoming film Vizhithiru. Dhansika, who was initially on stage, thanked everyone from her upcoming film, however, did not mention T Rajendar who has performed in a song. This seemed to irritate the senior actor and he verbally attacked Dhansika. He pointed out that even though she has acted alongside Rajinikanth (in Kabali), she should not fail to remember that Vizhithiru happened much before that.

Though Dhansika apologised to T Rajendar and explained that she was nervous at the moment, he did not accept the apology. He, in fact, went ahead and made distasteful comments about her attire at the event. He said, “You are not wearing a sari, so I do not want your sorry.” It has to be noted that T Rajendar is known for spewing rhyming dialogues such as this otherwise too. Usually they are aimed to entertain the audience. However, this time he crossed the line.

He also added, “I am not bothered about Hansika nor Dhansika.” You might wonder why Hansika was even a part of his dialogue. Well, she is his son Silambarasan’s rumoured ex-girlfriend. There was a lot of speculation about their relationship a long time back.

All of this brought Dhansika to tears, and none of the others present at the event tried to stop T Rajendar. He was apparently trying to teach her (medai-nagareegam) onstage manners as he called it, all the while ordering her around and speaking to her in a disrespectful manner. The fact that no one stood up for Dhansika has created a buzz among twitterati who are trolling T Rajendar for his attitude towards a female actor.

On the work front, Dhansika will also be seen in Bejoy Nambiar’s directorial, Solo also starring Dulquer Salmaan.
