Actor Parvathi stated that if she is denied opportunities, she would create them for herself. She said this during an interview with a TV channel.
“Several actors, both male and female, who are not members of the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) have been denied opportunities for supporting the WCC. The downfall of such practices in the Malayalam film industry will be seen in the coming years,” Parvathi said.
“I might have lost several opportunities. But in such situations, I will create opportunities for myself. Things are not like how it used to be. Actors don’t have to wait for anyone. Cinema and art forms are nobodies’ personal property. It would be foolish to think so,” said Parvathi.
“Losing opportunities had affected my career a lot last year. Not just in my case. I have always said that I am a privileged person. When I say those words too, I am saying it out of that privilege. Apart from WCC members, several male and female actors have lost opportunities for supporting the WCC. This is due to some ‘gangs’ in the industry,” Parvathi said in the interview.
Parvathi is currently acting in the movie ‘Uyare’ which tells the story of an acid attack victim. The movie will release on April 26.
