The Kasaba controversy refuses to die down, it seems. As the “unlikes” for the Pathungi song from the forthcoming My Story hits big numbers, perhaps as a protest to actress Parvathy, veteran actor Pratap Pothen has made a rather curious remark.

The video of the song has Parvathy and the film’s hero Prithviraj dancing to the beats of the number. In one of the shots, the actress is seen giving a smack on the hero’s butt.

Pratap has said in his Facebook post if it is normal when a heroine does this to a hero? He is obviously referring to the Kasaba controversy where the way in which the character played by Mammootty handles his colleague on screen had been questioned.

But then, there are no organisations to protect the rights of men in movies, says Pratap.
