"Even if trees stay calm, the wind doesn't let them stay the same. My wife's speech at an award function has been doing the rounds on social media and has led debates as well. Her opinion asking people to donate to schools and hospitals as much as temples are seen as a crime. I don't understand why a certain section of people is offended by this. Many spiritual leaders, including Vivekanandar, had always insisted that humanity is bigger than any religion," said Suriya, India Today reports.

Suriya revealed that there is a section of people who think sensibly and support Jyothika. The Singam actor also thanked everyone who supported Jyothika during this controversial time.
