Actress Parvathy Thiruvothu has declared to quit the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists. She has informed about her decision of resigning from the Malayalam actor’s organization via a social media post.
The decision came after the actress was harassed and Edavela Babu, general secretary of AMMA passed a remark on her in an interview. Edavela Babu was questioned in the interview if Parvathy would be seen in the upcoming Twenty 20 film.
Earlier in 2018, when a row over the reinstatement of actor Dileep was going on, the survivor and other three actresses Rima Kallingal, Remya Nambeesan, and Geetu Mohandas quit AMMA. Dileep was among them who was charged on the case. But at that time Parvathy didn’t resign.
She has opened up about this and said that she decided not to quit then thinking that somebody should stay inside the broken system to help it get repaired. The actress added that the recent comment of the AMMA general secretary forced her to take this decision. She said disappointedly that the way Edavela Babu spoke just finished all her hopes of seeing any change within the system.
“His utterly disgusting and mortifying remark comparing a woman member who had been badly let down by this organisation and consequently left it, to a dead person is beyond correction,” said the actress.
Babu was asked if Parvathy would be a part of the ongoing project, he replied, “how can you bring back someone who is dead?” He said that Parvathy is not a part of the organization.
Parvathy Thiruvothu not only protested strongly against the comments of Edavela Babu and resigned, but she also demanded the resignation of him from the general secretary of the association.
