parvathy

KOCHI: Actress and WCC member Parvathy Thiruvothu has announced her resignation from the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA). The actress announced her resignation through a Facebook post.

Lashing out at AMMA, Parvathy stated that she decided to resign from the association after seeing a recent interview given by AMMA general secretary Edavela Babu. The actress pointed out that Babu's remark comparing a woman member who was let down by the association to a dead person is beyond correction. Parvathy also demanded Edavela Babu's resignation through her Facebook post.

Parvathy wrote, 'In 2018, when my friends resigned from A.M.M.A, I stayed back thinking at least a few should continue to work within a broken system and help repair it. But after watching A.M.M.A General Secretary speak to Reporter TV's Nikesh Kumar, I have abandoned all hope that anything will ever change within this association. 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.
Mr Babu may believe he just used a metaphor, but it shows his nauseating attitude and I pity him. I am sure that when the media starts discussing this remark, many of his peers will support him. I’m certain about this because of the way they have always dealt with issues pertaining to women.
I would like to resign from A.M.M.A with immediate effect. Moreover, I strongly demand the resignation of Mr.Edavela Babu. I hope other conscientious members will also demand for the same, and I will be keenly watching to see who will come forward. I urge every member to see that it’s a hazy bubble of “welfare” that’s wrapped around a core of corrupt morals.'
