As Chennai continues its battle against the worst hit rains in a century, they are also coming across elements which trivialize their grave situation. Latest to join the long list of nuisances is the poster of Chennai Chief Minister and AIDMK leader Jayalalithaa who is depicted as Sivagami from Bahubali, blockbuster SS Rajamouli directed movie. She is shown rescuing victims of Chennai floods single-handedly. This poster of Amma has drawn severe criticism on the social media just a day after the fake photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi inspecting rains hit areas in Tamil Nadu was posted by state-run Press Information Bureau on its website.
With every passing day, the condition of Chennai is deteriorating with an increase in the death tolls. Even in such crisis hour, the political party does not comprehend the sensitivity. This poster shows the All India Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader as Sivagami played by actress Ramya in the movie Bahubali. It is inspired from the famous scene of the movie where Ramya is shown carrying a child (Bahubali) to keep him from drowning in the water.
