I never appreciate fans abusing anyone: Mammootty
Malayalam superstar Mammootty has broken the silence about the online harassment that actress Parvathy has been facing after she called out on one of his films as misogynistic.
Earlier in an open forum at the International Film Festival of Kerala, Parvathy had referred to Mammootty's movie Kasaba while saying that misogyny and violence shouldn’t be celebrated on screen.
Speaking about the issue to the media, Mammootty said that freedom of opinion is as important as freedom of expression and he wasn’t following the controversy that erupted after Parvathy’s comments as he was abroad.
He said, “I don’t go after any controversy. What we need are meaningful debates. I have not assigned anyone to respond on my behalf or defend me.” He also asked Parvathy not to worry about the issue when she messaged him. He also added that he will never appreciate his fans abusing anyone.
Last day, a person was arrested in the case lodged by Parvathy against cyberbullying.
