Chinmayi Sripada criticised actor Sathish for his statement on Dharsha Gupta’s dress at a recent event. Sathish was present at the audio launch of Dharsha and Sunny Leone’s new Tamil film ‘Oh My Ghost’. In a video shared by Chinmayi from the event, he is heard saying, “Sunny Leone has come from Mumbai for the event and look at the way she’s dressed (in saree). But look at the other woman (Dharsha), who is from Coimbatore, and look what she’s wearing.”

While Sunny wore a pink blouse with a green saree, Dharsha was seen in a blue blouse with a matching skirt for the event in Chennai.

The statement quickly came under the microscope, prompting Sathish to later clarify at the event that he made the statement on a lighter note and that he was only appreciating Sunny for adapting to south Indian culture and turning up in a saree at the event in Chennai. However, his comment was not appreciated by Chinmayi.

Chinmayi questioned Sathish for passing judgment on Dharsha’s outfit at a public event. She tweeted, “I mean - to actually point at a woman and ask for mass heckling of a crowd by a man on a woman, who doesn’t dress according to culture… When will this behaviour from men stop? It’s not funny.”

‘Oh My Ghost’ is an upcoming Tamil movie that stars Sunny Leone, Dharsha Gupta, Yogi Babu, Ramesh Tilak, Sathish and GP Muthu in key roles. The film’s audio launch took place recently in Chennai and was attended by the cast. Sunny, who especially travelled for the launch from Mumbai, was one of the event's main highlights. Fans shared videos and photos on social media of the actor from the event.
