Member of Parliament and President of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) Innocent Vareed Thekkethala has stirred a controversy by saying that 'bad' actresses might share 'the bed' at will. The minister was talking about casting couch in the Malayalam film industry.
Innocent first said that times have changed now and today, if an imprudent request is made to a woman, she would not take seconds to expose the same in front of the media and the public.
"Those days are long gone. If anyone says anything wrong to a woman in this day and age, it will be shared with people like you. But if the women are bad, they may share the bed," he said.
Last week, a press conference was held by the AMMA, with actors Dileep, Mohanlal, Mammootty, MLA Mukesh, and former Kerala transport minister Ganesh Kumar, among others, where questions were raised about the abduction and molestation of a Malayalam actress in February this year.
