Malayalam actress Parvathy, who impressed movie buffs with her powerful performance in Irrfan Khan starrer Qarib Qarib Single, faced the backlash of actor Mammootty’s fans after she called his film misogynistic. The lady opined her views at the International Film Festival Of Kerala 2017 and stated that she was shocked and disappointed with the star saying sexist dialogues in the film Kasaba.
According to a report of a leading daily, Times of India, the actress said, “With all respect to the makers, the film disappointed me, as it featured a great actor spitting totally misogynistic dialogues. A lot of people feel cinema reflects life and society, so when a superstar mouths such a dialogue, people might think its sexy and cool.”
As soon as the news spread, Mammootty’s fans started to troll the lady. From calling her cheap feminist to asking her about her identity, the lady had to face the wrath of the actor’s fans.
Parvathy again took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express her views and clarified her stand. She tweeted, “Cinema can reflect all aspects of the society and all kinds of people. The good, the bad and the ugly. But no! It cannot glorify injustice and violence as "cool" & "mass" entertainment. I rest my case. This was a good day indeed! Thank you for sharing (and hurling) your thoughts!”
On the professional front, Parvathy made her Bollywood debut with Qarib Qarib Single.
