Anoop Menon lauds Parvathy for clearly articulating the misogynistic undertones of Arjun Reddy
‘Arjun Reddy’ is a film that emerged as a huge blockbuster and went on to be remade in Hindi and Tamil languages. But along with the commercial gains, the film has often been lambasted for its glorification of toxic masculinity and misogyny. It was when the Hindi version ‘Kabir Singh’ got released that it became a big talking point. Director Sandeep Venga Reddy’s controversial interviews didn’t help either.
The dust is yet to settle down as Malayalam actress Parvathy came down hard at ‘Arjun Reddy’ during the round table discussion hosted by Film Companion. Parvathy’s words have gone viral as Twitter users across the country have been lauding her for being so outspoken and having the guts to trash the film right in front of its lead actor Vijay Deverakonda. The discussion also saw the presence of Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Vijay Sethupathi, Ayushmann Khurrana, Alia Bhatt.
Sharing a video of Parvathy trashing ‘Arjun Reddy’ in his social media handle, fellow Malayalam actor Anoop Menon has written,
Just chanced upon this…look at our own paravathi theruvoth articulating in unambiguous terms her disdain for the misogynistic undertones of “Arjun reddy” even as an elite slice of fellow indian actors listen with appreciative ears..loved it..
