KANNUR: Actor and MLA K B Ganesh Kumar said there is no need to make public the Hema Committee Report prepared after studying the issues faced by the women in the Malayalam film industry. All things need not be made public, responded the MLA in Kannur.

Minister Saji Cherian had earlier stated that the Hema Committee report would not be made public. Saji Cherian said Justice Hema had demanded not to divulge the report and that the chief minister had directed to resolve the issue in the film industry. The minister had also asked why so adamant to make public the report. Minister P Rajeev said that it was not mandatory to release the report as it was not under the Commission Inquiry Act. He had also revealed that the WCC had asked not to make public the report. The WCC had come forward against the minister's comments.

The state government entrusted a three-member committee in July 2017 to find a solution after studying the issues faced by the women in the film industry. The committee was formed based on the complaint lodged by ‘Women in Cinema Collective’ after the actress was attacked in 2017.

The committee was formed by retired Justice Hema, retired IAS officer K B Valsala Kumari and actress Sarada. This committee is known as the Hema Committee. This is the first time in the country that a government has appointed such a committee to study the issues of women in cinema.
