Thrissur : Malayalam film actor, Innocent Vareed Thekkathala has raised a few speculations over his ‘casting couch’ statement. Responding to a query on casting couch the standing M.P responded saying that “Those days are long gone. The moment you make an imprudent request to a woman in this day and age, it will be shared with people like you. They will speak about it openly. But if the women are bad, they may share the bed” This response did not go well with women activists especially the ones in Women In Cinema Collective (WCC) who responded saying “New artistes face several forms of sexual abuse while entering the film industry. Even our colleagues, like Parvathy and Lakshmi Rai, have spoken about casting couch openly… We cannot accept the statement that the film industry is free from all kinds of sexual exploitation and there should be cautiousness in making statements in public
