Sivakumar, who was present at the
July Kaatril audio and trailer launch event spoke about the phone knocking issue. A couple of times his father “Sivakumar” knock down the phone of the people, who didn’t get permission from him to take a selfie with him. This had turned a huge controversy and a lot of memes were created. In the July Kaatril audio launch, actress “
Kasthuri” made fun of Karthi, by requesting a selfie, as his father Sivakumar was not there.
Karthi, who took the mike said that people don’t have the courtesy to request for a selfie. The flash in the phone cameras hurts the person, who have migraines, said Karthi. We don’t have respect for the people nowadays, added Karthi. He also said that this is the right time for him to express his feeling about the selfie. Karthi is absolutely right. None will reject the fans to take a selfie with them if they get the permission and this is what Karthi meant to say.
