Heated Argument with a News Anchor
On 2 May 2022, a video of Vishwak Sen went viral on social media in which he was asked by the news anchor to get out of the studio. The incident took place when he was invited to the TV9 Telugu news channel for an interview about one of his films. During the interview, the discussion between Vishwak and TV9 Telugu news anchor Devi Nagavalli turned into a heated argument. In the argument, Nagavalli called Sen a ‘pagal sen’ and a ‘depressed person’ for one of his prank videos. Sen then asked her to stop attacking him personally by calling him with such names. Nagavalli shouted at him and asked him to get out of the news studio. As soon as the video went viral on social media, Vishwak’s fans started criticising Devi for her rude behaviour. Whereas, some netizens came in the support of Devi. Later, a case was registered against Vishwak Sen in the State Human Rights Commission for allegedly creating a scene to promote his film.
