Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) held a press meet in Kochi yesterday to address the impending issues in the Malayalam film industry. Present were actresses Parvathy, Revathy, Padmapriya and filmmaker Anjali Menon among many others who addressed the media contingent about the various issues. WCC lashed out at Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) over the way the Malayalam actress assault case handled. Speaking about actor Dileep’s membership reinstatement in the association despite being an accused in the case, WCC said that AMMA’s intent over the row is questionable and they now want to push for answers. "They pretended to be listening to us but they were not. When we asked them what they did for the survivor, they told us they filed a petition on her behalf. That petition was against her interests and it is even more worrying that an EC member and lawyer advised them on it," actress Parvathy was quoted as saying by The News Minute. "We will take away the masks. They pretend it is a happy family, it isn't," Parvathy added further.
WCC has also said that at this juncture they have no faith in AMMA, which is headed by actor Mohanlal, in the Malayalam actress assault case. "We need more responsible people who can think for everyone's good to become leaders of AMMA," actress Revathy was quoted as saying. The members of WCC also said that it has been more than a year and half that the Malayalam actress has filed a complaint with AMMA and no action has been taken against the accused. While the law will take its course, AMMA should also step in to protect and safeguard the assaulted actress, urged Revathy.
