Parvathy Thiruvothu Resigns From Malayalam Movie Artists Association


Parvathy Thiruvothu announced her resignation from the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) citing remarks made by the film body’s general secretary Edavela Babu about a fellow female actor.

Reportedly, when Babu was asked whether Bhavana would have a role in the second part of the film Twenty:20 being produced by AMMA, he replied, “Bhavana currently is not a part of AMMA. That’s all I can say. She did a good role in the first part. But we cannot bring back the dead. We can include actors who are part of AMMA.”

Parvathy in a Facebook post wrote, “In 2018, when my friends resigned from AMMA, I stayed back thinking at least a few should continue to work within a broken system and help repair it. But after watching AMMA 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.”
