Dulquer Salmaan about the attack on Bhavana
Police investigation on the attack on actress Bhavana is fast progressing. All the culprits have now been identified and search is on for them. More details regarding the investigation will be revealed by evening today.
Meanwhile, social media is flooded with complaints about reel heroes not voicing their opinion against such a critical issue. Dulquer Salmaan has made his stand clear on the issue through a post in his official Facebook page.
“I was hesitant to speak out about this incident yesterday out of respect for the victim of this travesty. It’s easy to just post something on social media, but I’m afraid it somehow becomes about yourself. This is so much more than all that. It’s something that sickens and frightens my core. I take great pride in our state and how safe our society is. Especially how we treat and respect our women. And yesterday it’s like that shattered. This is somebody’s daughter, somebody’s sister, somebody’s family and someone who has brought to life so many wonderful characters to us film lovers. I wish and pray our superb police force, the Kerala Police catch these spineless cowards hiding behind their masks. Including myself and our industry, I request all our boys and men, young and old to be alert and vigilant. It’s equally our responsibility to care about, look out for, and to respect & protect our women.”
The incident occurred on Saturday night when a group of me including Bhavana’s former driver abducted and tried to harass her in a moving car. The actress was returning back to Kochi from Thrissur after shooting for her upcoming movie. They tried to assault her and forcibly took some obscene photos. The incident was reported early morning by director Lal, in whose house she took refuge.
