Highlights

  1. Parvathy was speaking about ‘Arjun Reddy’ on a talk show
  2. She used the words ‘bipolar behaviour’ in her comments
  3. She said comments online appeared to indicate the film ‘incited violence’

Actress Parvathy Thiruvothu, who has been trending for the last few days for telling it like it is at a round table with other actors, out-Parvathy-d herself by responding to a tweet calling her out for casually using the term ‘bipolar behaviour’ during the discussion. Speaking to Film Companion’s Anupama Chopra in a gathering that included Arjun Reddy star Vijay Deverakonda, the refreshingly outspoken Parvathy spoke at length about why Arjun Reddy and its Hindi remake Kabir Singh, both accused of extreme misogyny, made her uncomfortable. In a comparison of Arjun Reddy and the recently released Joker – specifically how she felt the first film glorified violence and the second did not – Parvathy explained how the comments she read online appeared to indicate that Arjun Reddy ‘incited violence,’ describing it as ‘a murky space’ and ‘bipolar behaviour.’

Parvathy later chanced upon a comment from a Twitter user that read, “Okay ya’all, Parvathy is definitely rocking it here but did she just say ‘that’s a bipolar behaviour?’ Sorry, I couldn’t continue watching it post that.” Being Parvathy, she responded, saying she stood corrected and that she had been ‘trying to unlearn usages that allow using grave mental disabilities as a mere “adjective” to explain a situation.’
