Actor Dhyan Sreenivasan slammed Alencier Ley Lopez’s misogynistic remarks made during the Kerala State Film Awards 2022 function the other day. Speaking at a promotion event of his latest release ‘Nadikalil Sundari Yamuna’, Dhyan said that if Alencier had such an opinion, then he should have boycotted the award ceremony.

“Alencier is a close friend and like an elder brother to me. But, if he had such an opinion, then he should have not attended the event. On getting a dais, many people have an urge to seek attention for themselves. What he said felt like a publicity stunt to me,” Dhyan said.

When asked about why no action was taken over the remarks, the actor said the (government) system was responsible to take action and was not aware as to why action has not been initiated yet.

At the ceremony, Alencier had said, “Special Jury Award winners should be presented with a gold-plated statuette. Do not tempt us with this female sculpture. In a state with a manly chief minister, give us a sculpture with masculine strength.”

He further added that the award money was insufficient and addressing the award jury chairman Goutam Ghose, he said: “Don’t insult me and Kunchacko Boban by giving a mere Rs 25,000. Please increase the (award) amount.”
