Meera Jasmine, the leading actress in South says that she is not bothered about the ban announced by All Malayalam Artists Association (AMMA) and tells that she knows how to handle the situation wisely.
Recently, AMMA sent a show-cause notice to Meera Jasmine for refusing to give her dates to the Association's fund raising project Twenty: 20. In this film, 67 artists are participating and are extending their support to AMMA to raise sufficient fund to help poor artists' welfare.
When Dileep, the producer of the film Twenty: 20 approached Meera for her dates, she immediately refused to act in the film and said that she was busy in three films of South Indian languages.
Learning her decision, all the leading artists in Malluwood insist AMMA to take severe action against the actress for her non-cooperation to the association.
A couple of days ago AMMA declared an indefinite ban on Meera to act in any Malayalam films and sent a circular to all its members. At present, Meera is starring in 3 Malayalam films including Minnamini Koottam directed by ace director Kamal Hassan.
When questioned her about this ban, the actress coolly said, "I don't care about the show-cause notice or ban announced by AMMA. As I'm busy in Tamil and Telugu I rejected that project. But for that they have declared a ban on me. It is too much and ridiculous. Some of the functionary's statements on me show their awkward mind. But I know how to handle them."
Meanwhile, Meera Jasmine signed contract for a new Malayalam film with Naren on Friday. It is mentionable that Naren is the other important Malayalam actor, who escaped from AMMA's project!
