It was just recently that the highly talented TV anchor Ranjini haridas was criticized by the ‘Hasya Samrat’ of the industry, Jagathy Sreekumar, in front of the public during the Grand Finale of the Munch Star Singer Junior. She was blamed for commenting and judging the singers, which in his words, was only supposed to do by the judges. He just tried to imitate few of her actions and ridiculed her. She kept silent and replied that this day has been declared as ‘Ranjini Day’ and went on with the show.
But, she hits back at the actor by writing an article in the ‘Deccan Chronicle’ on ‘Exercising our rights’. She referred to Jagathy as ‘Mr. Moon’, as he was called ‘Ambily’. She wrote that he misused his freedom to say, to ridicule her.
She wrote that, “I guess I am just lucky that I am not scarred for life because of my thick rhino skin. I can just about imagine a teary eyed me running out of the stage weeping at being insulted by such a stalwart or even worse me getting back at him. An eye-for-an-eye, a tooth-for-a-tooth. But I had a job at hand and had to complete it.”
She also added that it was just ‘cheap publicity’ he aimed at, and now she has no respect towards him. But, Jagathy has not yet responded to her words.
