Santhanam Opens Up About The Ongoing Jai Bhim Controversy

Santhanam met the media at the pre-release event of his upcoming film Sabapathy. While addressing the gathering, Santhanam was asked about his opinion on the going Jai Bhim controversy. Santhanam expressed his opinion, which has caused a huge uproar on social media. In his speech, Santhanam said that it is wrong to criticize others while speaking highly of the film. Many pointed out that Santhanam has no right to make the statement as he rose to fame with his body-shaming jokes and by putting down his sidekicks.

 
Santhanam said, "No matter what movie it is, it isn't wrong to uplift someone. For example, if one is expressing views on Hindus, it isn't wrong to call them great or super. But what is wrong is calling Christians inferior or wrong. But we shouldn't hurt others. It is unnecessary. At the same time expressing views without watching the whole movie is also wrong. You can criticize a movie and question its flaws and if there are wrongs, they should be corrected. No matter what kind of people, caste, or community is portrayed in a movie, the audience is very clear about their opinion. But yes putting down someone to uplift another could be avoided. The upcoming younger generation should give good movies. The viewers sit for 2 hours in a theater room forgetting the religious, caste divide and the movie they watch should be a feast towards the same (unity) and that is my intention too."
