In his complaint, Ashraf Bedi had claimed that his name was excluded in the documents, which were submitted to the National Film Award Committee. After hearing his case, a judge at the Calicut Court has granted an interim stay order against the screening and distribution of the film Adaminte Makan Abu.
However, the Malayalam film is a thought-provoking portrayal of a man's search for a religious identity. Adaminte Makan Abu has bagged eight National and State film awards. Hero Salim Kumar has been adjudged as the Best Actor at both National and State film awards.
The screening of the National award winner movie Adaminte Makan Abu has been banned by a court in Kerala. Last week, producer Ashraf Bedi had lodged a complaint against director Salim Ahmmed for sending the movie to the National Film Award Committee for the award without mentioning his name as a producer.
