Actor Jayaram’s comment that
his servant maid is a ‘fat,
dark Tamilian… similar to a
bufffalo’ has hurt the Tamilians.
The actor, who plays a role in a Malayalam
film, where he falls for his house
maid, was questioned in a recent interview
if it had happened in his real life.
Jayaram replied that in real life,
his house maid looked like a buffalo.
This seems to have irked the Tamilians,
particularly those belonging to the
film industry. Director Thangar Bachan
had planned a demonstration in front
of Jayaram’s house until he
issues an apology.
Meanwhile, Jayaram had said that he
regrets speaking those words. He added
that was a dialogue that he used in
the film. The actor, who said that
he is a Tamilian in the first place,
also apologized with folded hands
for hurting the sentiments of Tamil
