Mollywood comes together in support of the actress

As Dileep is arrested, all eyes are on the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA). The stance of the organization in the aftermath of the actress’ kidnapping incident has been controversial and has been severely criticized by all.

AMMA never really issued a genuine statement in support of the affected actress, even though she is their member. In fact, in the eventful general body on Jun 29, the AMMA theory was that they support both their “children”, the actress and also, Dileep!

Some of the Facebook posts in support of Dileep have earned widespread protests. Salim Kumar and Aju Varghese made controversial remarks for which they are facing complaints.!

Dileep’s remarks against the actress during a TV interview was so rude that he later apologized for it.!

The press conference that followed the general body witnessed dramatic events, as actors Innocent, Mukesh, Ganesh Kumar and Devan shouted at the media persons announcing their support for Dileep.!

AMMA President Innocent took matters from bad to worse with some comments about ‘casting couch’ at the press conference called for to explain the Jun 29 events.!

Meanwhile, the birth of Women in Cinema Collective, an organization representing the women in the movie industry was also out of AMMA’s inaction.!

It’s to be seen now on how AMMA will do a damage control.
