Sai Dhanshika has finally broken her silence on the controversial incident involving actor T Rajendar during the 'Vizhithiru' film press meet held during the last week of September. Dhanshika who refrained herself from commenting on the issue decided to put an end to the controversy at a recent press meet.

According to the reports from news portal Behindwoods, she said,"“I had decided not to talk about the issue that made me break down on stage. People say that TR sir is a very spiritual person. But no spiritual person would shout like that. I am actually into spirituality and I have learnt to be very calm. By nature, I am a very short-tempered person but spirituality changed my temperament.

"What TR sir told me on stage was covered by the media and it took me seven days to get out of it as it affected me mentally. But I decided to remain silent because I have faced such accusations in the past. The truth is that a lot of women have been facing such problems in various fields. I am not blaming all men and I actually wish to take this as an opportunity to thank the men with a helpful tendency, who have helped me to get this far.”

It may be recalled that during the promotion of Vizhithiru, veteran actor T Rajendar lashed out at Sai Dhanshika for forgetting to mention his name while thanking the cast of the film. 

Rajendar, who wouldn't accept an apology from Dhansika went on to give her a lecture about 'mariyadai' or manners. 

Dhansika kept on getting up to apologise to the actor and when she told that she had great respect for him, he retorted - "Which market should I sell the respect you are giving?".

Dhansika replied that 'Sir, you can say many things in rhyme but', Rajendar interrupted her and said- "Sorry ma, it's not an argument" and gestures her to sit. The actress then went on to tell him that she didn't express her respect for him on the mic because she does have respect for him in real life too.

While the celebrities on the stage looked laughing and Dhansika was left in tears, he asked "Dhansika acted in Vizhithiru before 'Kabali'. She acted with Superstar Rajinikanth and forgot T Rajendar's name on-stage. That is the world. Do you think I need your acknowledgement to earn my livelihood? (Nee ellam en peru solli thaan enakk vazhanama)"

The actors present on the stage, including Krishna and Venkat Prabhu, did not intervene at the time, but have since broken their silence on social media.
