      Shweta Menon's Kalimannu in trouble!


      Shweta Menon seems to be caught up in the midst of a controversy. Shwetha, who allowed her delivery to be captured live for Blessy's upcoming film Kalimannu is being condemned for commercialising the 'most private affair of a woman' by the Kerala Film Exhibitors.

      The Kerala Fim Exhibitors' Federation recently said that they will boycott the movie if Blessy includes the delivery scene. The debate began when Kerala Speaker G Karthikeyan criticised Shwetha for allowing her delivery to be captured live on camera. Director Blessy was condemned for shooting the delivery for commercial purpose.

      The speaker said that a few years ago, a movie titled The Birth was screened at theatres across Kerala. However, the film was tagged as a medical movie, and so did not face any problem. Since Blessy is promoting the film as a commercial movie, it might have to face the heat since the federation feel that it might have a negative impact on the family audience.

      However, Blessy is not alone since the the Film Employees' Federation of Kerala (FEFKA) is all support for the director. Speaking to the media, B Unnikrishnan, general secretary, FEFKA said, "The controversy is baseless. This is not the first time that a delivery is being canned. Moreover, we don't know how he has visualised it."

      B Unnikrishnan also said that there is a censor board which looks into such matters and besides, certain specific norms are to be followed while portraying women in movies. He added that if the board feels that a particular scene is not worth being showcased in public, he will censor it. He signed off saying, "Blessy is a director with a good track record. Let's just wait for the final output."

      Shweta Menon starrer Kalimannu revolves around the bond shared by a mother and child, right from pregnancy. When asked to speak about the controversy, Shweta Menon refused to say anything saying, "No comments."
