Kozhikode: Actor Indrans apologised for his remarks regarding the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) and the 2017 actress assault case through a Facebook post on Monday. In an interview given to The New Indian Express, Indrans opined that the survivor of the actress assault case might have gotten more support if there was no WCC.
In the Facebook post, Indrans wrote that he had come across certain opinions of his friends in connection with the interview. “My intention was not to hurt or blame anyone,” he noted.
He alleged that some attempted to propagate his statements in a way that he never intended to. “I only said that it was difficult to believe one of my colleagues had committed such an offence. I consider the actress as my daughter. I am always with her in her sorrows,” read Indrans' Facebook post.
“The sorrows of humans greatly affect me. I have come from a background in which I am capable of perceiving the sorrows of everyone. I am conscious of where I stand,” wrote Indrans.
In the interview, Indrans said that the organisations have a limit to intervene and support the survivors of assault. Hence, everyone has to take care of themselves.
He also said that he would be shocked if Dileep was proven guilty in the case.
