The Qarib Qarib Singlle actor had recently called the dialogues in Kasaba ‘misogynist’. Her comments at the open forum of the International Film Festival of Kerala in Thiruvananthapuram had drawn the ire of the fans of superstar Mammootty, who played the lead role in the movie. Based on the real-life plot of the Malayali nurses who were stuck in war-ravaged Iraq, Parvathy’s role as one of the nurses was critically acclaimed. Parvathy, who was recently seen in the Bollywood film Qarib Qarib Singlle opposite Irrfan Khan, bagged the award for best actor (female), also known as the silver peacock, at the recent International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa for her performance in the Malayalam film Takeoff. She said that listening to such lines in the movie disappointed her. We have asked Twitter and Facebook for more information about these accounts. In the film, the actor, who plays a cop, is seen telling his female colleague that he could hit her so hard that it would disrupt her menstruation cycle. Related News
