Kochi: The Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) on Saturday came down heavily on the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (A.M.M.A) and its president Mohanlal over the alleged unresponsive attitude they have shown over the actress assault and rape case.
Sending out a stern message that they are not going to give up, WCC members including actors Revathy, Parvathy, Padmapriya, Rima Kallingal, Remya Nambeeshan and filmmaker Anjali Menon met mediapersons here.
In the press meet young actress Archana Padmini revealed that she had to face some harrowing experiences on the sets of Mammootty-starrer ‘Pullikkaran Staraa’, splashing a glance at the ongoing #MeToo campaign.
Meanwhile Revathy recollected an incident in which a 17-year-old girl knocked on her door around midnight pleading for help. Such incidents should not repeat, she said. However, she did not reveal the details of the incident despite repeated queries from journalists.
“I can’t reveal the details without the girl’s permission,” she said.
WCC strongly condemned the act of A.M.M.A that it was supporting the accused actor (Dileep) and not protecting the survivor actress.
The WCC members said AMMA was trying to cause confusion over its by-law. However, the WCC made it clear that nobody will quit AMMA now and also said that the members will attend the general body meet.
