The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) has decided not to take any action against actor Thilakan for his public comments against the association. Speaking after the general body meeting of AMMA in Kochi on Sunday, association president Innocent said that nobody had demanded action against the veteran actor.
Earlier, Thilakan, who got a special jury mention for his performance in Ekantham in the National Awards, had allegedly said that Malayalam cinema is full of schemers. At a meet-the-press programme arranged by the Press Club, Thiruvananthapuram, he alleged that there was a conspiracy to keep him out of films, adding that he attained recognition for his performance in Ekantham in spite of 'spoilers.'
President Innocent will personally ask Thilakan to refrain from this kind of unhealthy comment against the organisation. Meanwhile, reports said that there was difference of opinion among members about the move to take action against Thilakan at the general body meeting of AMMA.
