Misogyny and prejudice against women, debatably, is not only prevalent in the South Indian cinema but also promoted subtly, throughout the history of Indian Cinema. Over the years, only a handful of artists have come forward to raise their voice over it, and adding to the list was Kaduva actor Prithviraj Sukumaran. After an unsettling incident with a close friend, the actor publicly vowed against misogyny in his movies.
