Actress Parvathy quits AMMA over its normal secretary’s misogynist remarks

KOCHI: After a quick hiatus, Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (A.M.M.A), the organisation of movie actors in Kerala, is in information for all of the mistaken causes. In the most recent, famous actress Parvathy Thiruvothu has resigned from the Association which had confronted severe allegations of misogyny over the stand it took on the actor assault case. Parvathy severed ties with A.M.M.A over the latest remarks made by its normal secretary Edavela Babu concerning the survivor of the assault case.

Parvathy took to social media to announce her resignation and registered robust protest over the “disgusting remarks” made by Babu over her fellow actor.


During an interview with an area TV channel, when the A.M.M.A normal secretary was requested about whether or not the survivor actress can be a part of the film being produced by the Association, he mentioned, “She is not currently with the Association and we can’t bring back those who are dead. We can include only those actors who are part of the Association.”

There are stories that A.M.M.A might be producing the second a part of the multi-starrer Twenty: 20, produced by Dileep and launched in 2008, to boost funds.

“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,” Parvathy mentioned in her resignation letter.


“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 round a core of corrupt morals,” she added.


In 2018, actors Rima Kallingal, Remya Nambisan, Geetu Mohandas and the assault survivor had left the Association over the reinstatement of Dileep, accused within the assault case.
