On Tuesday night, two leading actresses in Mollywood took to social media to share their horrid experience during the promotion of their film at a mall in Kozhikode.
According to one of the actors, a person from the crowd had grabbed her, while she was returning after the programme. "Kozhikode is a place I like a lot. But, today while returning after the programme a person from the crowd grabbed me. It disgusts me to say where. Are people around us so frustrated?,” she had asked in an Instagram post.
Videos of the other actor reacting when she was assaulted had gone viral. The actress later said that she wished no one has to face that kind of unwanted trauma in one's life, “for violence against women there will be consequences and actions against these misogynistic individuals.”
