Two Malayalam Actresses Harassed At ‘Saturday Night’ Movie Promotional Event At Mall!

Trigger Warning!

Saturday Night is an upcoming Malayalam film directed by Rosshan Andrews starring Nivin Pauly, Aju Varghese, Saniya Iyappan and Grace Antony in lead roles. The crew of the film visited a mall in Kozhikode recently. There, two actresses were harassed by the public and they have taken to their respective Instagram stories about the same. “After the event, I and one of my costar were leaving the mall and some guy misbehaved with my colleague, and she didn’t even get a chance to see or react because of the rush and the crowd,” she shared.

“After that, I also encountered a similar act of misogyny and I reacted to it in shock as you’ve watched in the video,” she wrote further in a long post. Going by the viral photos and videos on Twitter, the promotional event at the mall was extremely jam-packed with hundreds pushing each other to get a glimpse of the actors. The security was struggling to handle the crowd. The actress further shared, “I wish no one has to face this kind of unwanted trauma in their life, for violence against women there will be consequences and actions against these misogynistic individuals.”
