Director Ranjith lashed out at veteran actor Thilakan's critics who he claimed are busy making condolence statements after his death. He alleged that during Thilakan's lifetime, they kept criticising and making planning methods to keep him away from films.
Ranjith, who was especially very close to actor Thilakan pointed fingers at some film organisations that banned Thilakan since he had made some very controversial statements against them and the people who were behind their success.
Thilakan, who was known for his outspoken speech had in the past made controversial statements against superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal as well.
Meanwhile, the social networking sites have come down heavily on the bigwigs of the Malayalam film industry as they did everything within their means to create problems while Thilakan was alive.
It is also being reported that many well known directors even refused to stop shooting yesterday to pay respect to talented actor Thilakan.
