The Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI), one of the apex bodies of film organizations in India, has decided to take disciplinary actions against former MACTA secretary, director Vinayan, Baiju Kottarakkara, Biju Vattappara and Aleppey Ashraf.
According to the decision taken at a meeting in Chennai, in future, FEFSI and Indian Film Employees Confederation (IFEC) will not cooperate with the films made by these four.
The disciplinary actions were initiated for their alleged involvement in creating tensions in the proposed fresh election, which was originally scheduled for 6th and 7th September. But the election was postponed after a fracas at MACTA office in Kochi. The supporters of two factions, led by director Vinayan and Siddhique, resorted to mindless violence at the office of MACTA during filing of nominations last month. Three people, including a policeman, were injured during the fight.
Meanwhile, Baiju Kottarakkara, a strong member of the Vinayan faction, made it clear that they will question these measures in court, if the organizations plan to go forward with the non-cooperation activities.
