Sivakumar, father of actors Suriya and Karthi has hit the headlines over his aggressive behavior with a fan at an event. Sivakumar recently attended an event as a chief guest at the opening of a private fertility centre in Madurai. At the event, a number of fans gathered at the event to catch a glimpse of the actor. As the actor arrived at the event to cut the ribbon, his attention went on a fan who was trying to take a selfie with the actor. Sivakumar smacked the fan’s phone off his hand and this has not gone well among the fans on social media. Fans are upset by Sivakumar’s aggressive behavior and demanded an apology from the actor for his action.
Finally, Sivakumar has reacted to smacking the phone away from a fan’s hand. The veteran actor in an interview said that fans should always ask before taking selfies with celebrities. He said, “I felt little disappointed to see around 20-25 people clicking selfies by pushing the volunteers and guards who accompanied me there.”
Dont take this in a lighter note.

“Taking selfies is something that involves the own interests as it might be something to relish with memories across your vacations and celebratory moments. I have no allegations or claims to make upon one’s personal interests. But when it comes to treating a socialite or a celebrity, it shouldn’t be the same there, where they deserve their privacies and respect too. It happened that from the moment I stepped out of the car and walked into the venue that was occupied with 200-300 people, I felt little disappointed to see around 20-25 people clicking selfies by pushing the volunteers and guards who accompanied me there,” Sivakumar said in a statement by Behindwoods.
During the same interview, Sivakumar also spoke that fans have to take permission before taking selfies. She adds, “What I personally feel is that it is a courtesy to ask any celebrity or any person before they start clicking photos with them. A celebrity cannot be treated or taken for granted as a public property. I am someone, who has never hesitated to take photos at the airport and any gatherings with hundreds and thousands of people.”
