The South Indian Cine Artistes’ Association (SICAA), otherwise known as Nadigar Sangam, is said to be seriously contemplating imposing a ‘blanket ban’ on actresses from appearing in ‘revealing’ costumes – especially exposing their thighs – at filmy functions and audio-launches.
The Sangam is also mulling over passing ‘instructions’ to all its members to talk only about film(s) and related issues at audio-launches and not dwell on other unwa(rr)anted issues. The various controversies arising out of speeches and utterances made by actors and technicians during those functions have reportedly made the Sangam think about instructing on what to speak and what not to speak.
There have been many instances in the past when actresses appearing in revealing and (s)exposing costumes have created waves and kept the photographers busy clicking their pictures. It has become very common among actresses to attend the audio-launches clad in macro-mini skirts and other dresses which reveal ample portions of their thighs to kept he photographers and the audience busy.
Just when the photographers get clicking, these actresses object to them getting photographed. Their attitude seems to be like, ‘I’d don whatever I want and I’m beyond criticism’. In one such instance, Shriya Saran’s ultra-glamourous dress during the audio-launch of Sivaji: The Boss by Shankar a few years back is still fresh in the minds of pressmen as well as those who attended the event.
