Malayalam actress Anna Rajan , who won millions of hearts by her by portraying the character Lichy in the realistic entertainer Angamaly Diaries and recently appeared in a big role in Mohanlal-starrer Velipadinte Pusthakam has become the latest victim of online trolling. 

However, during a promotional event of the movie in a TV channel, a tricky question asked by the host has landed the star in trouble. She was asked If Mammootty and Dulquer Salmaan come together in a movie, whose heroine she would want to be. To this question, Anna responded saying: “Let Dulquer be the hero and Mammooka be the father.” She also added: “Let Mammootty be the hero and Dulquer be his father.”

This comment was taken as an insult by Mammootty and Dulquer fans who lashed out at the actor and trolled her on social media. Since Anna had acted with Mohanlal in a lead role in the Onam release Velipadinte Pusthakam, fans believe that she has no right to throw such an “insult” at Mammootty.

Upset by the harsh words and memes, the actor broke down and did a Facebook live apologising to the fans of Mammootty and Dulquer saying that her words had been twisted. “I had no intentions of insulting anyone. I am sure I will never reach that level anytime in future. But people misinterpreted my comment and I never thought websites would twist the facts. I am very upset,” Anna was heard saying in the live video.

Coming out in support of Anna, actor Rima Kallingal wrote on Facebook that she didn’t see the problem with Mammootty playing a father role, considering how talented and versatile an actor he is.
