Isha Koppikar might not have made it big in Bollywood. She has also been away from the limelight for quite some time now after working in a number of Hindi and regional movies. She is planning to make a comeback soon with a Tamil movie opposite Sivakarthikeyan.Â The untitled flick will be directed by R Ravi Kumar and is said to be a sci-fi movie with aliens also being a part of the story.
But even before the actress ventures into K-town again after a hiatus of 18 years, she seems to have attracted controversy with her statements about southern superstars Rajinikanth and Ajith, which did not go well with the fans of both the superstars.
The actress had stated that Sivakarthikeyan the Superstar Rajinikanth a lot, whether itâs his eyes, hair or face. Not only this, she also added that she is not sure whether it is his style that matches with that of the Kaala actor or he intentionally copies Rajinikanth.
Talking about Sivakarthikeyan, Isha said:âItâs not because of his mannerisms or anything. I am not saying heâs consciously trying to emulate Rajini sir, but itâs there. Maybe the hair, the face, the look in the eye, the colour... Somethingâ
The fans of Thalaiva slammed the actress on various social media platforms for comparing Rajinikanth with Sivakarthikeyan. But this didnât end there. She went further to say that she liked actor Ajith a lot but she doesnât know whether he is still working in films. âAnd I used to be quite fond of Ajith back then - I donât know if heâs still around, though,â said the actress.
Johnson Anto Sachin, a city youngster and a Thala fan feels that pulling out big names is only an attempt to gain fame. âI strongly condemn what the actress has said. Nowadays it has become a fashion to quote names of stars, creating controversial speeches and seeking fame. It seems like a desperate attempt to be in the news.â
Soumya, student and Thalaiva fan, is of the opinion that given the career graph of the actress, her statements shouldnât be highlighted so much. âShe is a flop actress, couldnât get a footing in Bollywood. Her views arenât worthy and such actors arenât welcome at all,â she says.
âActors like Isha Koppikar who are oblivious about the industry shouldnât be signed in future for any movie,â says Akalya, a city youngster who feels that itâs imperative for someone in the movie business to at least have a solid know how of the industry they are a part of.
