Malayalam actress Anna Rajan trolled for her comments on Mammootty

Anna Rajan, who shot to fame after playing a pivotal role in Angamaly Diaries, has landed herself in a fresh controversy. According to reports, Anna Rajan was asked if she'd be willing to act with Dulquer Salmaan and Mammootty.

In an interview to a Malayalam channel, the actress reportedly said that she'd want Dulquer to be the hero, while Mammootty could play her on-screen father. Her statement didn't go well with fans, as she was continuously trolled and abused on social media. So much so that Anna Rajan had to issue an apology on Facebook.

In the video message, Anna said, "I meant it to be taken as a joke. People misinterpreted my comment. I didn't think that some media would twist and misinterpret my comment. I am no one to insult Mammookka or Dulquer. I have no intentions of insulting the great actor. My sincere apologies to the fans of Mammootty and Dulquer if my statement has hurt you. I want to act in both Mammootty and Dulquer's movies." Anna Rajan broke down while recording the video.

It must be noted that Anna Rajan played an important role in Mohanlal's Velidapante Pusthakam, which could be one of the reasons why she was trolled by Mammookka fans.

Last month, a senior journalist was abused and sexually harassed online after she criticised Tamil actor Vijay's Sura.
