Actress-turned-politician Khushboo, who joined the ruling DMK last year, has condemned the trend of actresses leaving the function(s) midway, even before the chief guest (Kalaignar) is still seated on the dais. This is not acceptable at all, she has said.
Khushboo was clearly referring to the recent function held in Chennai by the Govt. of Tamil Nadu to honour actors and actresses with the ‘Kalaimamani’ awards. The awards were given away to actor Arya, actresses Anushka, Tamannah and to many others.

Before the function came to an end, Arya, Anushka and Tamannah left the auditorium, making the audience murmur among themselves. Khushboo, who was among the audience, has said that it was a ‘condemnable’ culture by the actors and actresses who were only ‘disregarding’ the chief guest Kalaignar.
“It’s part of our culture to leave a particular place only after the elders leave. I felt very bad when the actresses left along with their family members soon after receiving the award. I would like to make one thing clear: the function wasn’t political one; it was the function wherein the government honoured the actors and actresses.
“I appeal to the actors and actresses not to do so in future when Kalaignar is on the dais,” said Khushboo.
