Actor Parvathy tendered her resignation to the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) on Monday. The award-winning actor registered her protest after AMMA General Secretary Edavela Babu in an interview on Reporter TV made a remark about a female actor.
In her letter posted on her social media pages, Parvathy said, “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.
