Director Harish Shankar fired on TV5 Samba Interview during MAA association press meet. Calling the press meet the first of its kind, Harish Shankar said, it is so unfortunate to conduct a press meet to condemn the language used by an anchor on a public platform. He questioned as to how an anchor can use such a filthy language on a television program. He said he is not objecting his freedom of speech, but his language. Harish Shankar demanded the channel heads to take action on the anchor, so that it wouldn't be repeated again.
