Team 'Women' And WCC Against Sreenivasan And His Rhetorics.
"Sreenivasan Comes in Support of Dileep in Malayalam Actress Assault Case; Also Slams WCC for Making ‘False’ Allegations of Exploitation"
The controversy over Dileep's involvement in the Malayalam actress sexual assault case refuses to die down. Now another prominent Malayalam celebrity has come out in defence of the accused actor. Sreenivasan, popular actor and scriptwriter, has given out a statement where he has defended Dileep in the case, claiming that the actor can never do such a thing.
During a promotional campaign for his upcoming film, Kuttimama (also starring his younger son, Dhyan), Sreenivasan was giving an interview to Manorama News where he was asked about Dileep. To which, he replied, "The Dileep I know won’t spend even 1.5 paise for such a matter." This was in reference to being asked if Dileep had paid Rs 1.5 crore to Pulsar Suni, the main accused in the kidnapping and assaulting the actress in 2016.
Sreenivasan also slammed the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) in Malayalam industry for their allegations that there is exploitation against female actors and unequal pay. Sreenivasan claims that such things never existed in Malayalam cinema. He said, "There is no exploitation of women in cinema. Men and women are equal."
Now, major social media groups and write-up companies are in the game to respond for the above.
