With the latest developments in the abduction case involving a prominent actress making the rounds, the press conference of the Association of Malayalam Movie Actors (AMMA) on Thursday in Kochi showcased high voltage drama with most pathetic scenes and the lowest depth into which a whole fraternity can stoop down. Some of the key members of AMMA were visibly annoyed by the questions raised by reporters. How much more male chauvinistic can an industry become?
Addressing an eagerly-awaiting audience of media, AMMA’s president Innocent MP and other office-bearers (including two MLAs) explained the decisions taken at the Annual General Body Meeting. After the explanations, the floor was open to questions and that was when the atmosphere became tensed. Questions regarding the abduction and alleged sexual assault against the actress; one of AMMA’s ‘daughters’ (as the outfit wants to address her) came up and Innocent made the cliché reply that the case is under court jurisdiction and the police have handled it well.
Actors Dileep and Nadirsha who were questioned the other day by the police for 13 hours about their connection with the case also were present for the general body meeting as well as press meet. At one time Dileep apologised for the dreadful remarks he had made against the actress.
