A Malayalam director made physical advances; Lakshmy Ramakrishnan

In an interview with The New Indian Express, Actress Lakshmy Ramakrishnan questions if there is even any real change in the industry today. Especially after young actors speaking against se- -x- -ism, films with lead female actors being written about by critics. She feels not much has changed and said, “I refuse to believe that a film sells because of its hero. In recent times especially, I’ve seen a lot of actors speak out against se- -x- -ism, and reviewers write about underwritten female roles.

She, in fact, recounts a personal experience, when a Malayalam film director made advances at her. She recalled, “There was a leading Malayalam director — a man who has made films in Tamil too — who tried to make se- – x – ual advances at me. When I refused, he made it a point to insult me on the sets. He shouted at me in public and harassed me by deliberately making me redo some scenes more than 25 times. I demanded an apology, and things took a nasty turn. Such men exist across the cinema industry, but we don’t really speak about them.”

“Recently, a guy who was sent by a director, came to my apartment to discuss a project. As the discussion went on, he slowly spoke about making ‘adjustments’. I thought he was talking about adjusting my dates, but I was shocked to realise that he was talking about something else. Needless to say, I ushered him out,”. Chakkara Muthu, Pranayakalam, July 4, Novel, Violin, Pianist, Jacobinte Swargarajyam are the movies of Lakshmy Ramakrishnan in Malayalam.
