Actor Rahul Ravindran, who was recently seen in Mahesh Babu's "Srimanthudu", has heavily come down upon a fake 'thala' Ajith Kumar fan for trolling his wife, playback singer Chinmayi Sripada.

Chinmayi recently shared a photo that she received on her Whatsapp. In response to her Twitter post, a guy named Rahul, who has a Twitter id as @Thala_Ajith_Fan, trolled her with abuse and nasty comment, which has irked both the singer as well as her husband Rahul Ravindran.

An upset Rahul Ravindran took to his Twitter handle on Monday to blast the alleged culprit. In a series of posts, he said the guy is educated, but it is of no use as he is 'indecent' and 'shameless'. The actor requested his followers to find out the phone number of the culprit's mother so as to inform her. Here is Rahul's series of comments.

"Wife shared some of the things trolls have tweeted in reply to her sharing a whatsapp forward.. She herself wishes she hadn't. But.... I usually ask her to ignore and practice the same.. But wow.. Basic lack of decency and shame. Education's been wasted on them. Poor Chinmayi is not as thick skinned as I can be. But some of these trolls can get through to a buffalo with their spite. Some tweets... ... Hurt her and she starts replying to a lot of tweets she wouldn't otherwise reply too. This guy...Most likely not even a Thala fan...I really wanna mess with him.. Someone help me get his mother's number (sic)."

It should be mentioned here that Chinmayi Sripada is not the first celebrity to face this kind of awkward situation. A host of other Tollywood actresses, including Trisha and Samantha, have been trolled in a similar manner. Some of them hit back, while others ignored them.

In fact, Chinmayi herself had spoke to trolling on social media in an article - Public shaming - published on her official website. "There have been various studies that have been published on online troll behavior. They are said to be mix of sadists, narcissists and psychopaths."

"In our attempt to bring about 'justice', using social media as a tool for public shaming, in a situation where we believe a person has erred, are we, the ones who believe ourselves to be sane and compassionate/empathetic (add any positive adjective that you would love to describe yourself) exhibiting troll tendency at some level ourselves? Especially the sadistic aspect? Or are we all closet bullies?" the singer added.
