Riythvika who made her debut in Bala's 'Paradesi' has made a name for herself as an actress of substance impressing in 'Madras', 'Oru Naal Koothu', 'Kabali' and 'Irandaam Ulaga Porin Kadaisi Gundu'. She also became a household name after her participation in 'Bigg Boss 2' hosted by Kamal Haasan and winning the title.

Riythvika faced criticism on social media that she won the 'Bigg Boss 2' title due to her belonging to a lower caste. She retorted to that in 2018 writing in Tamil "For those who are searching which caste Riythvika belongs to...I don't belong this one or that one and if you can you dive into your caste gutters and try to find mine" Recently a social media user posted Riythvika's photo and commented in Tamil "Even pigs look cute in their young age and trolling her once again as a lower caste girl".

Riythvika reacted strongly by writing "“saringa Mr. Baadu, sorry Mr. Maadu” and later she has put a full stop to the controversy by writing in Tamil "It would have made me much happier if I was born a “Dalit”. What to do ?? Unfortunately, I didn’t receive such a boon. I am also a girl born into a sinful dominant caste that was involved in the persecutions of others in the past. I feel sorry for that. Let us try to live in a casteless society as humans at least from now on. Wait. In a way I am also a Dalit If people who are being oppressed are identified as Dalit, then I am a Dalit too as I am a woman. We have been oppressed by men for years and years. Yes, Dalit. You men are responsible for making us “Dalits”. Thanks for your compliment on my looks. P : S : Dalit girls are much prettier than me”

Riythvika's slam on the insensitive casteist troll has been welcomed by thousands of her fans and followers who are lauding her for her open-hearted and bold statement. The talented actress will next been seen in 'Yaadhum Oore Yavarum Kelir' starring Vijay Sethupathi and Megha Akash.
