During an old interview, Malavika had commented on a ‘big superstar’s’ scene in a hospital from a film in which she was looking quite prim and proper. She had said, I’ve seen this really big superstar actress from a hospital scene. She’s dying but she’s in full make-up. With eye-liner, hair done and not even one hair out of place. I’m like how can a person be dying with their lipstick in place. Even if it’s a commercial film and you have to look pretty, it has to be a little realistic.”

Now, in the recent viral clip from Nayanthara’s interview with TV host Dhivyadarshini, the actress has responded to it saying, In this interview of another heroine, she didn’t mention my name but she was talking about me. She said she saw me in a hospital scene from a movie and I looked prim and proper. She’s asked how someone can look so pretty in a hospital scene. I don’t say one has to look prim and proper in a hospital but that doesn’t mean you have to look shabby, no? There’s a huge difference when you’re doing a realistic film and commercial film. When you’re doing a realistic film, you go to that level where you look the part. This particular example was from a commercial film. In this film, my director wanted me to look this way. The film is being taken from a commercial aspect.”
