Veteran actor Sivakumar receives flak for how he behaved at an event in Chennai. The actor, Suriya and Karthi’s father, attended a book launch in the city.

The incident

In the video, Sivakumar can be seen reacting with scorn towards a fan who wanted to give him a gift. An old man can be seen approaching him with a smile on his face and a shawl in his hand, but Sivakumar was in no mood for it. He can be seen grabbing the shawl and throwing it on the ground before making his way through the crowd with his entourage. When someone handed the fan the shawl, Sivakumar can be seen refusing to take it from him again and leaving.

Fans react

Fans have called the behaviour ‘worst,’ with one writing, “@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)”

Not the first time

This is not the first time Sivakumar has lost his cool at an event. In 2018, he made headlines when he knocked down a fan’s phone from their hand when they tried to click a selfie with him. Similar to this instance, that video had also gone viral, with many criticising his actions. In a video message, he later apologised, stating, “Since many felt I should not have acted in such a manner, I express my deepest regret and apologise wholeheartedly.” He also called the fan taking the selfie ‘an invasion of privacy’ given that his permission wasn’t asked. He also bought the fan a new phone.
