She has alleged that the real reason is the teaser of her film ‘Aadai’, where she appears to have done a nude shot.
Actor Amala Paul in a statement released on Thursday on Twitter, has announced that she is no longer a part of the Tamil movie tentatively tilted “VSP33” (Vijay Sethupathi’s 33rd film).
It is alleged that the makers feel that the actor is not “production-friendly”.
Amala, who is awaiting the release of her much talked about film Aadai, has questioned the nature of such an allegation and in her statement has recounted her many experiences of having to let go her salary because of budget constraints.
Amala Paul, in her statement, has accused the producer of “VSP33”, Rathienavelu Kumar, of throwing her out of the film after watching the teaser of Aadai.
“It’s just a patriarchal, egoistic, traditional mind-set of Chandarra Arts Production (production house of “VSP33”) that this is happening right after the release of Aadai Teaser and my image is sabotaged with multiple baseless rumours that are mischievously being floated around in the industry,” Amala writes.
Calling the makers “pseudo cinema punters” who do not value the emotional investment of an actor towards a film, she further says that Tamil Nadu will have better cinema only if this large set of traditional, patriarchal production houses changed their mind-set.
“It’s time that someone stood up and I am ready to face this behemoth issue that is plaguing us, just as David and Goliath,” the actor adds.
It’s amazing when you see women standing up to these sexist, regressive men! Kudos to you Amala!
