Why didn’t women collective register a fierce reaction? askes P K Sreemathy
Thiruvananthapuram: The members of Women in Cinema Collective, who attended the AMMA general body meeting, should have shouted their throats out for the actress’ cause, opined P K Sreemathy MP.
“The formation of Women in Cinema Collective is a commendable move. However, they failed to utilise the opportunity. Had they registered a fierce reaction at the AMMA meeting, the society would have hailed them,” the CPM leader said in a post on her Facebook page.
In'nt AMMA taking an anti-women approach by giving equal treatment to the victim and to the one against whom allegations have been levelled. If women in cine field grow suspicious over AMMA's stance, how can they be blamed," she asked.
Lifting of ban won't change my attitude: Vinayan
Making his stance clear over the recent developments in the actress abduction case, director Vinayan said nobody can effect a change in his attitude.
In a Facebook post, Vinayan said it is disheartening to note that AMMA has not even passed a resolution expressing solidarity with the actress.
His reaction comes close on the heels of AMMA lifting the ban on Vinayan and restrictions placed on actors to associate with his films.
“I will stand firm on my stand till the end. The lifting of ban can in no way make an impact on my stance. Those who took away nine precious years of my career can never compensate for my loss,” he said.
“I don’t nurse any grudge for the previous incidents,” he added.
