AMMA, the association of Malayalam actors, has appointed the new executive committee, for the year span 2015-2018. Unlike the earlier years, the executive committee of 2015-2018 has lots of specialties.
Unlike the earlier years, no election was conducted to select the executive members. But the biggest specialty is the comeback of Mammootty into a major position of the committee, after a long gap.
Mohanlal, who has been the General Secretary of the association since last 9 years, has shifted into the role of the Vice-President. Dileep, who was the Vice-President of the association, has shifted into the position of a treasurer.
As per the latest reports, the new committee, which will take over the charge this week, is planning to produce a Television serial soon. The association is planning for the new venture, to provide opportunities for the senior actor who struggles with financial issues.
The project is expected to have an official announcement soon. AMMA's decision to produce a television serial has created a huge stir in the mini screen industry. Reportedly, the popular serial banners are highly insecure about the project.
As per the sources, the popular actors and directors including Mammootty and Shyamaprasad have publicly stated their deep displeasure over the current trends of serial industry, in recent past. Mammootty has openly criticized the TV serials in a recent award function.
Sources suggest that the TV serial produced by AMMA will bring a total change in the current trends in the mini screen industry. The new committee is also planning for some other projects, which will be announced soon.
