Kochi: Actor Rima Kallinagal says that a handful of Dileep fans, who have indulged in distributing sweets outside the jail after the High Court granted bail to the actor are not "real men". In a Facebook post, she has criticised and mocked the sweet distributors and those engaged in posting offensive materials from fake profiles on the social media. "We as a society need to tell my friend and the world that the 100 people who distribute sweets outside the jail and do 'copy paste' from fake profiles like cowards are not the real men of our society. These are not the men we want to be friends with, fall in love with, spend our lives with, enjoy a drink with, celebrate with and trust with all our hearts. Can the real men out there please stand up and take a bow", the post said.
The post that begins by mentioning about screenshot sent to her by the actor who was attacked on February 17 Ms Kallingal said " I think I have a duty to tell her that all our men shouldn't be shamed for the acts of a few and that we women should stand with the real men of this state". It is time we save our real men from the kind who spew expletives on a woman and make her take down a Pulimurugan review and bring shame to Mohanlal and all the real men out there.
Save them from the kind who make Lichi cry 'on live' and bring shame to Mammooty and all the real men out there.
Ms Rima says that the kind of Facebook message like this one spreads the message that Dileep indeed has given the quotation and he is capable of much more whereas he might actually just want to reflect on his life after 85 days in jail. Save our real men and the younger generation from the belief that this is machoism and heroism. Save them from appearing idiots cos they are clubbed with these brainless dimwits.
