R. Madhavan schools a troll on his insensitive comments on a family picture

Social media has become an open platform for trolls to say literally anything to public figures. While most celebrities keep away from responding to hateful comments, some get their hand dirty and indulge in explanations. The latest victim to an unfortunate event was R. Madhavan who shared a beautiful picture of his father and his son celebrating Rakshabandhan at home. 

You can see the three generations of his family sitting on the floor in a traditional outfit. Missing the point of the picture, a man pointed out how a cross which is a symbol of Christianity was placed in the actor’s temple and commented, “Do you find Hindu god in Christian churches? Lost all respect for you.” 


This did not agree with Madhavan who decided to respond to the man’s hateful comment. The actor posted, I really don’t worry about respect from the likes of you. I hope you get well soon. Surprised that in ur sickness you did not see the Golden temple pic there too and asked if I converted to Sikhism. I have blessing from the Dargas there too and blessing from all religious places around the world. Some gifted and some bought. My home is home to staff from all faiths and we pray at a common alter. Like any defence personal will tell you, happens in every unit. I have been taught from my very childhood to maintain my identity with pride but at the same time RESPECT each and every faith, belief and region. ‘Yemmadhamum Sammadham’ (I respect each religion as my own). I hope my son follows that too. I have prayed at every Darga, Gurudwara and Church. I have had the good fortune to visit when a temple was not around. They have shown me utmost love and respect knowing that I am a Hindu. How can I not reciprocate that. All I have is a lot of love and respect to give as my vast travels and experience has proved, is the only true faith. Peace and love to you too.” 


This comment from the actor caught the attention of many people and won him praise for his graceful response to the toll. More power to you, Madhavan.
