The Malayalam actress who was molested and gang-raped in her own car just a couple of weeks ago is back to work and braving it all! The actress, acclaimed for her roles in south Indian films has chosen to rise from the trauma her ordeal has brought her. In a brave post on Instagram, she has posted her comeback message. We don’t follow her on Instagram, it was through Malayam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran‘s post on Facebook that we came to know. The actress has apparently revealed on her official Instagram account, “Life has knocked me down a few times, it showed me things I never wanted to see. I experienced sadness and failures. But one thing for sure, I always get up! #ThankYouAll #ForTheLove #ForThePrayers.”Also Read - AIIMS Doctor Alleges Rape by Senior Colleague During Birthday Party, Case Filed
The entire Malayalam industry had stood in support of the molested actress and demanded a quick investigation into the horrific incident. Right from Mohanlal, Mammootty, Dulquer Salmaan to Bollywood actors like Farhan Akhtar and many others had supported the woman in her fight against the rapists. We hear the Malayalam actress is also going ahead with her scheduled wedding, reportedly to a Kannada producer. Here is the post by Prithviraj Sukumaran on Facebook that reveals the message the actress wants to share.

Prithviraj has from Day 1 supported the actress since the unfortunate incident happened. She is his co-star in his next film and when they began shooting recently, he was amazed to see the actress back to work after her assault! Prithviraj had shared a long post saluting her, titled Courage, on his Facebook. See the earlier post by Prithviraj Sukumaran with the message of the actress who was molested by her own former driver (as per reports).
Some of the most poignant moments in my life have been punctuated with moments of incredible courage. Courage from what I have now fully realised are God’s most benevolent yet intricate creations. WOMEN!
From a mother picking up pieces of a suddenly derailed life, to bring up two young boys to be the men they are today..to a wife who at the fag end of a 40 hour labour, just as she was being cut open without an anaesthetic, holding my hand and telling me “It’s alright Prithvi”..I have repeatedly been dumbfounded in realising how much of a lesser being I am in the company of the women in my life.
And today..as my dear friend walks in to the sets to kick start the shooting of her new film “ADAM”, I once again bear witness to an extraordinary moment of courage from an extraordinary woman in my life! Today..she makes a statement..a statement that will echo through time, space and gender..that no one or no incident has control over your life but YOU! A statement that will now be part of counselling sessions and pep talks around the world. A statement that you my friend..are making in a million unheard voices!
And to those voices I apologise..for at an age and time when I wasn’t wise enough..I have been part of films that celebrated misogyny..I have mouthed lines that vilified regard for your self respect and I have taken a bow to the claps that ensued. NEVER AGAIN..never again will I let disrespect for women be celebrated in my movies! Yes..I’m an actor and this is my craft! I will whole heartedly trudge the grey and black with characters that possess unhinged moral compasses…but I will never let these men be glorified or their actions justified on screen.
Once again..ladies and gentlemen..stand up and applaud for her! Behind the gutsy spunk, there is a vulnerable celebrity who knew well enough what this decision of hers would mean to a life under constant scrutiny. But she also knew..that she had to see it through…for that would set an example..light a torch that will show a path for many to follow!Today she makes a statement..
A statement of extraordinary courage!
Fanboy for life…dear friend..fanboy for life!
We salute the braveheart actress and also stars like Prithviraj and the others who are supporting her in collecting the pieces of her life together. We hope such an incident does not happen ever again and to anyone!
