Meanwhile, Nivin Pauly, Asha Sarath, and Honey Rose, who had contested for the official panel tasted defeat. Tovino Thomas, Unni Mukundan, Manju Pillai, Lena, Rachana Narayanankutty, Surabhi Lakshmi, Baburaj, Sudheer Karamana, and Tini Tom are the other members who have been selected to the AMMA executive committee this time. Interestingly, four out of the eleven executive committee members are women, this time.
Recently, the AMMA members had turned into two groups before the elections, which led to a rift between the members. Mohanlal, the president of AMMA was heavily criticized by the association members for campaigning for the official panel. As the president of the association, the superstar was expected to stay neutral and not take sides in the elections.
It was also rumoured that Mammootty might make a comeback to the executive committee of AMMA this time. However, it was later revealed to be false, as the megastar made it clear that he only wishes to continue as a common member of the association. To the unversed, Mammootty had decided to permanently leave the executive committee of the association, after the actress abudction case created quite a stir in AMMA.
