meeting held among MACTA members to discuss the Dileep issue
witnessed some hot happenings today. MACTA secretary, director
Vinayan, and director Siddique exchanged words in a heated argument
and the latter walked out of the meeting in the end.
Siddique is going to start a new project named
Bodyguard with Dileep in the lead; Vinayan asked him to
stop it since director Thulasidas has complained against Dileep.
But Siddique, on the other hand, refused to back off from the
project, thus going against the wishes of the secretary.
It is heard that during the argument between the two, Vinayan
made some personal bad comments humiliating Siddique and all
directors. Following the events in the meeting, writer-director
Ranjit announced his resignation from MACTA. Following suit, now 26
directors have resigned from MACTA and 9 of the 19 associated
unions are showing signs of their dissent.
On the other hand, secretary Vinayan said that he would be
forced to take disciplinary measures against those who revolt and
try to weaken MACTA.
