Kerala State Film Awards 2015 is landing into new controversies.
As per the revelations of the award jury, Mammootty was
denied the Best Actor award due to some silly reasons.
According to the jury members, Mammootty was denied the award,
as he is too good looking for the character CK Raghavan in
Munnariyippu, who is a convict. It
is also rumoured that Mammootty's political stand and the recent
lamp lighting issue has affected the award results.
The jury's revelations have hurt the Munnariyippu cast
and crew members. Writer Unni R openly stated that Mammootty's
portrayal of CK Raghavan was well-accepted and he doesn't need any
awards for his performance.
Mammootty, on the other hand, hasn't responded to the statements
of jury members yet. But the statements hasn't gone well with the
fans and well-wishers of the actor. The jury has been heavily
trolled on the social media upon the issue.
Popular actors, including Joy Mathew and Meera Nandan
have publicly disapproved the award results. Joy Mathew stated his
disapproval upon the State Awards through a recent Facebook
Meera Nandan, on the other hand, has congratulated the Award
Winners including Nivin Pauly and Nazriya Nazim. But the actress
has asked an explanation from the jury for not considering Jayasurya's
performance in Apothecary.
