Director Mysskin’s comments that ‘had I been a girl, I would have raped Mammootty’ have triggered a huge controversy in the social media, with many slamming the director.
He said this while praising the Malayalam mega star for his performance in director Ram’s upcoming film, titled Peranbu.
Heaping laurels on Mammootty, Mysskin said that if someone from the Tamil industry had attempted to perform the role, they would have spoilt it by over-acting.
He went on to say: “You can keep watching Mammootty sir throughout this film. If he had been younger and he had been a woman, I might have fallen in love with him. Had I been a girl, I’d have raped him actually. Such a fabulous acting.”
Social media users are fuming over Mysskin’s comments. An user AnithaLives said, “@Director_Ram cheap speech from Mysskin..:
Sujatha Narayanan said, “Is this even a worthy manner of appreciating Mammootty? What is so funny in #mysskin saying he would’ve raped #Mammootty had he been a girl? Role reversal?? Its not a compliment to either the mega star or any woman. Also – One can praise an actor without having to decry another.”
Meanwhile, coming to Mysskin’s defence, director Vijay said, “I think we should take Mysskin’s comments only within the context of him trying to appreciate the actor. I don’t think we should create controversies out of this.”
