Director Vinayan, Chairman of Malayalam Cine Technicians Association (MACTA), has denied media reports that the Association had enforced a ban on all Dileep films in the state on the basis of a complaint from director Thulasidas, accusing that Dileep has walked out from a film after taking payment of Rs. 40 lakhs four years back.
MACTA, that comprises 18 different sections of Malayalam film industry workers, right from drivers to directors, has only forwarded this complaint to the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA), he added.
"The media report that we have called a ban on all Dileep films is wrong. Instead, we have only taken up this complaint with AMMA," said Vinayan.
[an error occurred while processing this directive] AMMA president Innocent has agreed that MACTA has written to it about this issue. "We will react to this in two days' time," he said. However, Dileep is yet to react on this issue.
