I constantly see Stars performing for south indian songs especially tamil and telugu. But the costumes that they wear are kinda insulting us. Go for Dhoti(men) and half saree (women).

But whats with cheap makeup ,bended braids with pink ribbons,half saree that is 3/4th and the weird expressions ? Do you think that our movies or people in real life wear such things?

I could have taken that its funny if it was done in one show...but the same costume and expressions are repeated in all the dance shows...whenever the song turns out to be a south indian folk...

I am fan of ragini but i felt really bad while seeing the promos and the judges giving her a full on 30 :(

P.S: The word 'you' is directed towards the choreographers and the performers onlySmile

Haven't seen the promo yet, so can't say anything about Ragini but yes I have seen this stereotype not only for South Indians but also for North Indians it's not only dance but in other aspects too... For the life of me I haven't figured out why are still stuck with stereotypes from 80's??

@kajolj: Yes .. I agree ..The fist impression remains unchanged still.Like, Here in chennai, all north indians are 'Marvadis' (mostly!!)
and there in North india , all south indians are 'Madrasis' !!

I agree with Shri Kannan, very valid pointThumbs Up

I am not south Indian but a huge fan of Tamil films. It's a shame that the weird expressions/caricatures are repeated in literally every show/season. 

Ironically, its the not so great dancers who perform well on them, remember Composer Anand Raj Anand in a previous season? and now RaginiConfused

The entertainment industry is full of stereotypes. Its not just the south Indians. Punjabis (esp. Sikhs) are always projected as boisterous loud-mouths. Parsis as cranky misers.
