After all the controversies and questions raised about his stint as the chairman of the Chalachitra Academy, director Priyadarshan has plans to resign soon, as per some reports.
The hotshot director, known mainly for his masala movies most of which are blatant copies of already made Hollywood hits, was appointed after friend K B Ganesh Kumar became the state minister in charge of films. Ganesh, who is also a wellknown actor, had to quit following certain issues with his former wife.
Priyadarshan was always regarded as a misfit in a post, where makers of serious cinema usually occupy. He is currently busy organizing the International Film Festival of Kerala,
which is going on at Thiruvananthapuram.
