Actress Suhasini regrets comment

November 15, 2005 21:14 IST

In a sudden U-turn, Tamil actress Suhasini, who had defended film star Kushboo's remarks on pre-marital sex, on Tuesday expressed regret for her comments and wanted the entire episode to be treated as a bad dream.

"Please treat the entire episode as a bad dream," she said in a self-explanation to South Indian Film Artistes Association President Vijaykant and General Secretary R Sarath Kumar, two days after cautioning Kumar not to send her any communication in this regard.

Vijaykant and Kumar said Suhasini's explanation would be considered by the association.

"We only request all association members to be careful in speaking to the press at functions," they said, adding that no one should make remarks which would hurt the feelings of others in future.

Suhasini, in her letter, according to the release, said her remarks had brought the association into a difficult situation.
"My views should not affect the association in any manner. Any adverse impact of the remarks should be borne by me only and not by association members," she said.

On November 13, Sarath Kumar had sent a letter to Suhasini seeking an explanation for her defence of Kushboo. Despite coming under attack, Suhasini had reiterated her support for Khushboo in the last couple of days.
