Rajendran had to face a volley of abuse from various Twitter users who were allegedly fans of actor Vijay, who has a number of hits under his belt.
According to the Newspaper, The tweets were abusive, misogynistic, and cringe-worthy, to say the least. Surely, this is a kind of tacit approval from the actors, if they refuse to address such issues."Some argue that Vijay may not even have heard about such instances, to which Dhanya responds, "Of course he must have!"
Bengaluru based journalist Dhanya Rajendran posted a tweet in which she said she walked out of Shah Rukh Khan's film Jab Harry Met Sejal and compared it with walking out of Vijay's film Sura some years ago. Isn't it? Or should we ask a film critic to limit his/her opinion to herself and never ever comment on how an actor fared at the box office? "Everybody has the right to criticise anyone's film".
"I'm some one who respects women a lot". Police said Dhanya has identified 25 individuals, whose tweets disgraced her, in the Twitter. It is my view that no woman should be spoken of in a demeaning way for any reason or any time.

Four investment analysts have rated the stock with a hold recommendation and three have given a buy recommendation to the company. Zacks Investment Research raised TELUS Corporation from a "sell" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Tuesday, April 18th.
Womanhood should be praised, he said, and urged that no comments "hurting anybody" and women in particular, should be published online. "I request that nobody should share hurtful and wrong views about women on social media".
Most of those harassing Dhanya, and the others who supported the journalist, were hiding behind anonymous handles and proudly proclaimed that they will continue to harass her for criticising a Vijay film. These acts to strangulate the freedom of expression, especially of a woman journalist in Chennai is highly deplorable and condemnable.
Rajendran, through her posts later, indicated that the backlash was an organised exercise in targeting her.
