Kochi: Two members of the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) have approached the Kerala High Court on Tuesday seeking the intervention of the court to end sexual exploitation of women and setting up internal complaint redressal cells at cinema shooting locations in the state.
The petition filed by Rima Kallingal and Padmapriya has mentioned the state government and the Association of Actors of Malayalam Movies (AMMA) as the respondents.
The court is likely to consider the petition on Wednesday.
The petition has been filed in the backdrop of Archana Padmini, an actor revealing her bitter experience at the location of a Malayalam film.
Following this Aashiq Abu, a filmmaker and director had said that henceforth he would have an internal complaint committee in his film locations.
Minister K.K. Shyalaja had stressed the importance of the need for complaint cells in all places of work after having a meeting with Beena Paul and Vidhu Vincent, members of the WCC, earlier in the day.
