Award winning actress Parvathy was abused on social media. She lodged a police complaint and a 23 year old youth identified as Printo from Thrissur District, Kerala was charged under sec 507 IPC for criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication and under sec 509.
At an open forum organised by the Kerala Film Industry, she voiced her opinion against glorifying misogyny on screen. She said she was disappointed to hear a leading actor mouthing misogynistic dialogues and said that it would give a wrong impression to people.
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor came out in support of the actress and held that she had a right to express her views without being subjected to threats.
