The actors usually be in news for their films or for controversies, which may have created by them. The same has happened with the veteran Malayalam actor Thilakan, who has been in the news since the last few days because of the controversy surrounding him.
Thilakan is struggling to get an opportunity to work in films as certain groups of the Malayalam film industry, are allegedly denying him work. As reported earlier, the actor was eliminated from the film Christian Brothers by the producer in February 2010. Since then, he has been jobless and looking out for work.
Now, the actor has called government to interfere and resolve this issue. He has even threatened to commit suicide if he does not get justice and work.
The veteran actor said, “I will start an agitation before the house of the State Cultural minister M.A. Baby, if the government does not take action against those who have denied me the right to work. I will even commit suicide if the agitation does not work."
Social worker Noornad Sreekumar has recently filed a complaint on behalf of the actor as Thilakan was denied the right to work. Based on this complaint, the State Human Rights Commission, has also filed a case, which is now pending.
In the meantime, Thilakan added, “I am gathering enough proofs to establish my case. I will bring the job denial practice to the notice of various organizations in show business as well as the government."
We hope the veteran gets justice and is not forced to take the drastic step!
