The last-minute cancellation of the trailer launch of Omar Lulu's movie "Nalla Samayam" by the Highlight Mall authorities in Calicut has led to discussions. Omar Lulu said that they had to cancel the programme after mall authories denied permission as Shakeela being the guest. Shakeela responded to the issue by saying that this is not the first incident for her and that it happens from time to time. Many people came to the stage to support Shakeela. Now writer S. Saradakutty has come up with a response to the incident.
Saradakutty says that people should not forget how they were saved by using Shakeela when the film industry collapsed. They also note that there are people here who wrote stories and poems praising Silk Smitha after her suicide.
Read the full version of Saradakutty's note:
Seen in the news that after the actress Shakeela was called in connection with the promotion of the film at Highlight Mall in Kozhikode, the Highlight Mall authorities informed her that the programme could not be held because she was Shakeela. Also watched a video. They said that this is not the first time that they have been insulted. Shakeela is an artist. Film is a profession she took up to save her own family. Although they later collapsed, we should not forget that she saved us when the film industry collapsed. All of the humiliations she endured were always on their own. Despite being part of a large industry, she never had anyone with them. No one will ever know her pain. There will be no one to stand with her publicly. There are people here who wrote stories and poems praising Silk Smitha after her suicide, right?
