Haven’t asked anyone to defend me: Mammootty on Parvathy-Kasaba controversy

Printo was taken into custody and is currently being interrogated. Parvathy has been the target of a troll campaign after the Qarib Qarib Singlle actor said that she found Mammootty’s Kasaba misogynistic. “I don’t go after any controversy. Parvathy had made the comments during an open forum at the International Film Festival of Kerala where the actor said that misogyny and violence shouldn’t be celebrated on screen. What we need are meaningful debates. I have not assigned anyone to respond on my behalf or defend me,” said Mammootty.
