Ranjini Haridas hits back at Jagathy Sreeekumar, after the actor criticized her in front of the audience during the Grand Finale of the Munch Star Singer Junior. She was harshly criticized based on her performance as an anchor of the Idea Star Singer reality show. Jagathy said that she is not supposed to say comments on a singer’s performance.
Ranjini, who kept silent and smiled at the function, have now outburst her emotions in a feature written by her in ‘Deccan Chronicle’ on ‘Exercising our rights’.
“Just the other day I was the victim of an individual who took advantage of his right to freedom of speech to publicly embarrass and ridicule me. Moreover, all this happened on national television! The man in question, who from now I shall refer to as Mr. Moon, clearly overstepped the limits of what to say when and where, and to my aggravation, had no regard or respect for the event at hand or the people concerned.”, she writes.
“I guess I am just lucky that I am not scarred for life because of my thick rhino skin. I can just about imagine a teary eyed me running out of the stage weeping at being insulted by such a stalwart or even worse me getting back at him. An eye-for-an-eye, a tooth-for-a-tooth. But I had a job at hand and had to complete it”, she added.
She said that what he did was for ‘cheap publicity’ and also that she lost the respect towards him. Well, whatever it is, both of them are accepted figures in their respective fields. Jagathy’s response to her words is what remains now…
