Even as the storm over Radha Ravi's comments on Nayanthara at the Kolaiyudhir Kaalam trailer launch continues to rage, singer-voice artist Chinmayi laid bare yet another disheartening issue. 

The National Award-winning singer took to Twitter to state that ever since her run-in with Radha Ravi, and outing Vairamuthu as part of the MeToo movement, she has been penalised for it.

Meanwhile, music director Govind Vasantha, whose breakout album, 96, had Chinmayi crooning superhit numbers, stood in solidarity with the singer and tweeted: "Chinmayi WILL sing in my films till SHE says NO to me. No one else will decide on behalf of me."
