Imagine your wife is alone at home. It is dark. A bunch of goondas come and throw stones at the window. She is terrified. They damage the car and set the sofa on fire. You don’t know what they will do next. This is what Parvati faced the other day in Chennai, when goondas belonging to Tamil director Seeman’s Nam Tamizhar group attacked their house when Jayaram was not there.
At this moment we should pause and say Jayaram is an insensitive idiot. When asked if he was attracted to his maid, he replied, “My maid is a dark, fat buffalo — like Tamil woman. How can I be attracted to her?”. Sure. It is not funny. It is insensitive, derogatory and highly offensive. Just think if this is what someone told about Parvati.
