'Bangalore Naatkal' Press meet

Actress Parvathy, who has been vehemently attacked by some, following her remarks about Mammootty’s dialogues in Kasaba has said about her side of the issue in Manorama news channel’s Newsmaker 2017 programme.

The controversy started when Parvathy mentioned about the misogynistic tendencies of certain characters in Malayalam films and she said Kasaba as an example, during an Open Forum section at the recently concluded IFFK.

This started a campaign targeting the actress.

“I didn’t intend to point out any particular hero during that discussion. What I meant was when you reach a certain power, when you have become a personality who can influence the audience, there comes a certain responsibility. When a dialogue is given to me, I start thinking about the meanings it can attain when it gets a visual grammar. It can be a regressive dialogue. Then it should be underlined as a regressive one. When it is a given a visual grammar that suggests it is heroic or super, the message given will be wrong,” says Parvathy, in the excerpts video of the show.
