The 100 greatest performances of the Decade by Film Companion brought the prominent stars across the country under one roof. Earlier this month, a picture of Bollywood stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Manoj Bajpai posing along with South cinema’s Vijay Sethupathi, Arjun Reddy star Vijay Deverakonda and Malayalam actor Parvathy Thiruvothu was surfaced.
Now the video of the above mentioned names having a discussion about acting has been released by Film Companion South. Hosted by Anupama Chopra, the show had the stars sharing their personal experiences and their perception about acting. The 97 minute long video made us realize about the tough phases an actor goes through and we happened to witness some confrontations between them as well.
Actress Parvathi who is known among Tamil audience for her performances in films like Poo, Mariyaan opened on why she chose not to act in films that has item songs or misogyny perspective. Parvathi clearly said that there is a fine line between what misogyny is in society and glorifying it. The actress further compared Joker and Arjun Reddy to make her point clear about glorification and simply portraying. Joker is a recently released hollywood film in which the titular role was essayed by Joaquin Phoenix.
“Arjun Reddy or Kabir Singh had the visual grammar of glorification but Joker didn’t. In Joker when we see the character killing everyone we are not getting influenced. The film literally showed us the facts and we can leave it where it is after watching it. But Arjun Reddy influenced many and we can see it in the internet” said Parvathi who labelled Arjun Reddy as a misogynist movie in front of the one who played the lead role in it. The actress even added that actors should be responsible by not being the part of such movies.
This bold statement from the actress lauded by the users of Internet as soon as the video surfaced. Watch some of their reactions here :

However, The lead actor of Arjun Reddy who was present at the interaction had different reasons to justify why he did the titular role of that film. The actor said that the world is already going down and just a film could not save it by being responsible. “just a film doesn’t decide your behaviour. There’s a lot of things beyond it like parenting, schooling etc for a man to behave in a particular way. One can’t just watch a movie and be like that.” said Devarakonda while answering to Parvathy.
While talking about influencing many people the Arjun Reddy actor said “If you think broadly, hitting each other in a relationship is completely normal for a couple who have such understanding. But If I come from a family where my father hit my mother to abuse her, then it won’t work out for me because of my bad memories. What I am trying to saying is I couldn’t make a film for every single person’s personal lives. The directed balanced it very well and I completely bought it”
