Actor Sreenivasans insensitive comments against teachers lands him in legal trouble!

The Kerala State Women’s Commission had filed a case against veteran actor-screenwriter Sreenivasan for his insensitive comments against Anganwadi teachers in the state. Actor Sreenivasan courted in the controversy by saying that women without any education are made Anganwadi teachers in Kerala.

The actor made the statement in an interview with Kaumudy Tv channel. “In Japan, teachers who know psychology and psychiatry teach kids of kinder garden and playschool. Here, is it like that? Women with no education and who do not get any other jobs are made Anganwadi teachers. These kids grow amongst them, and can only grow to their standard,” said the actor.

The complaint was taken on the basis of a complaint given by Anganwadi teachers who felt their comments gender-insensitive and hurtful. The women’s commission has opened a probe and is likely to demand an explanation from the actor for the remarks he made.
