Ranjini Against Jagathy

23rd August 2011   ·   29 Comments

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.

    Ranjini actualy became famous on negative publicity like santhosh pandit. That is why she is getting so much criticism. Pandit became famous just bcz of d ‘standered’ of his movie and d movie songs. And Ranjini became famous bcz of her fake malayalam accent. Santhosh delebaratly kept the standered eof his film low, n so is ranjini. Her fake malayalam accent was delebarate. Unlike pandit n againt her hope the publicity she got was negative instead of positive. She is infact malayalee’s female Santhosh pandit. May be, it can also be said that pandit is our male Ranjini haridas bcz she was d first one to become famous on negtive publicity.

    A man canot criticize a woman even for a strong genuine reason?!! Some perverted feminist minds like ‘sanj’ think so. They yell out dat men hu criticize women r just hipocrates and such men wud also rape dem if dey get a chance, dey wil abuse dem in a bus, wil pass sexual coments on dem on the street,!!! How do people like sanj devolop such perverted, pornographic notion?!
    As dileep said they certainly must have some serious phycological prblm.Sooner dey get d treatment 4 it d beter. Or dey wl b d victim of their mindset eventualy. There r a lot of liberated, inteligent, smart, able, succesful women in kerala. The r not criticized like Ranjini n dey get d respect dey deserve.People,including women,criticize Ranjini 4 some specific reason. One can disagree wit dem but cant bark at dem lik a mad dog.

    Sanj, u r a women with some serious phsychiatric problem. It must have arisen from bitter experiences and deep frustrations in ur life and it is not ur problem. It is easly understandable frm ur scribblings. You hate man especialy hu hate foolish girls like ranjini and u consider women like ranjini ur ideal. People hu criticized ranjini here had their reasons and they described it here what it is. U can disagree with them and even criticize them. But instead u get furious, use fowl langage cal them names.
    Ask ur father, not ur mom, to arrange for ur treatment otherwise ur problem may develop into schizophrenia. That wil b dangerous. Dangerous 4 u and others.

  14. Dileep says:

    What is the meaning of smartness guys? Is it pretending that one doesnt know his or her mothertounge wel. Is it that speaking her mothertounge with fake accent deleberatly as per the old and fallacious malayalee phychology that not knowing their mothertounge well mean that they are part of a class who are above those who cant manage white man’s language? Is it pretending that they are at par with that superiour race; saayippu? Then i certainly hate ‘smart’ girls like ranjini. Ranjini is a disgusting symbol of an old, average malayalee whu considered themselves inferiour to white people and try to be like them by pretenting that she knows only english well and deliberatly try to mimick english people’s exact accent and use fake malayalam accent thus indicating they are a defferent class.

  15. jaya dhiraj says:

    what jagathy did was wrong and cheap..he proved that he is mannerless.ranjini,live your life the way you want..speak,walk and behave the way you like…you have the right to live your life..malayali men can’t tolerate smart females!!

  16. Sk says:

    You Re beautiful REnjini….We love you….you are so innocent and sweet hearted…ignore the clod hearted crowd.They are just Malayalees

  17. Sam EKM says:

  18. kris says:

    frustrated mallu men can’t stand women being smart and independent. Jagathy and all of you bitching about Ranjini are frustrated jackasses.Let the lady be and get a life morons.

  19. Joshy john says:

    I am surpriced that ranjini was furious by jagathi’s comment.He even didnt say that ranjini say that. Her persnality seriously lacks something as we all know. I hate this lady’s attitude from top to bottom. Renjini even doest have a voice of her own. She uses different tones so dat one doest know wich is her own. She often use a base voice wich sounds more like a madamma. Western ladies’ voice usualy is of a hard tone. I think she mimic them. It is part of a psychology dat white people r beter, right n superior. So people of dat psychology try to copy dem in every respect knowingly or unknowngly. Sometimes her voice become like dat of a flerting teenage girl n sometimes in between. In brief even her voice is fake.she is fake from top to bottom. That is wat makes her an agly unbearable creature. But it only becomes a problem wen she anchor such a popular show wich we al like.
    But it is d chanel hu is 2 blame for dat not her.

    Jagathy did a wonderful thing. Ranjini u say to dose ‘use ur remote n change d chanel if u dont like me’
    how can u say dat? It is a grand musical reality show. U r just a tiny part of it. Although tiny, ur delebarate fake malayalm and english too(a mimicri artist can pronouns english better than u) make ur presence in d show just unbearable. It is of no use to advice one hu think that if a tree grows up from their anus that would only bring them publicity. But stil i humbly request u to try to use ur original malayalam to make d show for peaple like me less unbearable.

    For gods sake its already time that ranjini should go anew anchor should come.what jagathy said is correct.asianet management i think shoild search for anchors just as singers.

  25. sasidharan says:

    Dear Jagathy,

    You are a great actor, it is very nice to watch the way you act, Many stages you have told that you always speaks the truth, strait forward,not biased and so many things.why you want to cheat yourself,most of the people in interviews tell the same.you are not an exemption.
    If you still justify your actions on stage,you are not worth off. You dont have any business to comment on the way an anchor should behave, considering the fact that the show is not an live programme. the actors will perform the actions permitted by the director.If you feel that some actions of ranjini is not good ask the director or producer to change her. don’t expect some to change their actions if it has the approval of the producers and directors.

    Think, i hope your daughter is hosting some cookery show,i dont like many of her actions and movements.can i do the sameway you did.you know very well that only one jagathy is there to tell the truth,who will not wish to go against own daugter. You may say the show is not much popular,that is not an excuse. If you dont like some one dont try to insult. It is true that many so called true malayalee ladies and their supporters hate ranjini simply becuase she is different from them, not married still at the age of 29 speaks and lives boldly, and the popularity she got also disliked by many. What to do friends you better ask the producers to change the anchor or just stop watching it. jagathy remenber ranjini is performing only because of the people,even they dislike her but people want to see her on the stage.thats why she is there
    Jagathy dont act as a saint who always tells truth, you should better learn how to speek when and where. and ever dont claim that you have echoed the sentiments of common people.

  26. Prakash says:

    Ranjini has a fake accent which mostly all agree. Jagathy has pointed this right and the reason behind is the language Ranjini speaks during the reality show(Its not a insult or abuse).
    ISS reality show is business which showcase the value of Kerala culture and its own beautiful language Malayalam.Here the purpose of the show is to refine upcoming young talents where the candidates have prove their strength on singing in beautiful language Malayalam, or otherwise it could have been a white person singing in English and gets the prize?.
    This show being a Malayalam show, the malayalee viewers who adds value to the show and Asianet business would definately expect the anchor should have basics which is the value for the language atleast act on the live program.
    There are many examples in India where the reality live show streams in different regional language and cannot find fault with the Anchor and the presentation and can see them speaking very fluently and respectfully in their own languages.However, I have more questions which are unaswered?
    Why Kerala Asianet ISS is different ? Why do the Asianet producer promotes the value for unspoken-unknown-engli-mallu
    version of language.?Why is the Anchor is so care-free (“disrespectful”) to her own known langauage?
    LET GOD SAVE GODS OWN COUNTRY AND ITS CULTURE.
    LET GOD KILL THE ENGLIMALLU CULTURE..and lets all pray.

  27. Big B says:

    This is such crap. Jagathy clearly crossed the line by miles that day.

    Personally I am not a fan of Renjini. She is flashy, westernized and maybe an eye candy at times but really she is not someone I admire a lot. But that is NO excuse to insult someone in public in front of live television. Be it Jagathy or any big wig in the malayalam film industry.

    Influencing the judges by giving her opinion is a bullshit argument.

    If a professional singer and a music director, who have been in the industry for ages can be influenced by the comments of a flashy anchor, then they were never fit to be judges in the first place!

    And people who feel influenced by her comments should probably stick to watching fat ass aunties on mallu serials.

    Renjini mayhave a fake accent, she may be westernized, she may be arrogant. That still does not give anyone the right to insult another person in public.

  28. Ruben B says:

    Ranjini,
    Your pronouncing judgement before the judges doing it is totally wrong. Fact is, people dislike it when anchors like you say ,”oh your song was good but it was not as good as the last time right… now let us go to the judges.”

    The judges are the experts let them give judgement on something as skillful as music.

    Take it like an adult and come back stronger rather than saying that Mr Moon did it for publicity.

    Just saying

  29. Ruben B says:

    Dear Renjini,

    Of course you have the right to defend yourself. Jagathy Sreekumar does not need any publicity so do not make any comparison to people like you.

    Jagathy said something that most malayalees would say about anchors like yourself. You can call it generation gap or whatever but remember the crowd liked it and so it means the majority of the audience in our state dislike fake people like you who put a fake accent.

    You were not born or brought up in the US so why cannot you speak normal like the rest of the people without a fake accent and your english is also not that perfect.

    That is the only mistake I see in you. But you are also a great talented person. good luck
