Renowned actor Sivakumar, father of actors Suriya and Karthi, came under scrutiny for his conduct during a book launch event in Chennai. A video captured by ABP Nadu circulated online, unveiling an incident that occurred offstage.

What is the incident that is drawing flak against Sivakumar?

In the footage, Sivakumar arrogantly reacts to a fan's attempt to present him with a gift—a shawl. Despite the fan's friendly approach, Sivakumar snatches the shawl and tosses it aside before departing with his entourage. Despite attempts to return the shawl, he refuses it and leaves the scene.

How did the internet react to Sivakumar’s recent behaviour?

Fans expressed disappointment, labelling the behaviour as 'unacceptable.' One netizen tweeted directly to Suriya, expressing concern over the incident's impact on the family's reputation. He wrote, “@Suriya_offl His actions directly anger others towards you, resulting in a loss of respect for your family. #Sivakumar #Suriya Don’t extend invitations to individuals of this nature for public functions. Just ignore them and withhold respect. #Tamilcinema #Ajithkumar𓃵 #Vijay. (sic)”

This is not the first time Sivakumar has behaved like this

His subsequent apology acknowledged the public's disapproval where he mentioned the invasion of privacy due to the lack of consent for the photo.
