Noted Malayalam dubbing artist Bhagyalakshmi has lashed out at P.C. George, Poonjar MLA, for his 'cruel statements' about the young actress who was assaulted in a moving car in Kochi on February 17.
In a Facebook post, Bhagyalakshmi said George had insulted the actress and that he also mocked the investigation team. She was responding to George’s statements on how the victim actress went on to act in films two days after the heinous incident and why she did not go to hospital for treatment. Bhagyalakshmi said that it was shameful that a people’s representative could talk in such a way.
Questioning P.C., Bhagyalakshmi said, “Should an attacked or molested girl sit at home and end her life crying? Is that what the people’s representative is saying? Are such things a joke for you? Are you saying these just because the victim is an actress? If such an incident had happened to your daughter, would you lock her up and make her sit at home?”
“George sir, if you think you are a star by speaking out such things, then you need to think if people listening to you will actually applaud you. By saying these, are you trying to justify the act of (main accused) Pulsar Suni and his gang? This is indeed a cruel statement. If you are a true representative of people, then you should know people’s pain rather than taking out guns and claiming unwanted things," Bhagyalakshmi wrote.
George had on Monday made the statements against the victim actress at the Alappuzha Press Club. He also challenged the state government, seeking it to probe the wealth and assets of superstars Mohanlal and Mammootty, and others in the film industry. He said actor Dileep was a 'poor guy' who got his wealth through his hard work. Dileep was arrested on July 10 on the charge of for hiring goons to abduct the actress and videotape the assault.
