Bare bares his wrath

The stance of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (A.M.M.A.) to postpone decision on whether actor Dileep, accused of masterminding the abduction and sexual harassment of his female colleague, will continue to be a member or not, has not gone down well with many in the industry and public. The organisation’s meeting on Saturday in Kochi happened after the members received a letter from actors Revathy, Parvathy and Padmapriya seeking a final decision on the issue.

Irked by the association’s position, actor-producer Prakash Bare unleashed his criticism through a Facebook post, which starts with a phrase: ‘A.M.M.A’s middle finger greetings to Malayalam.’

Further, it reads, “After months of deliberations, they have decided to delay the decision by a few more months. Total submission to the accused, expelled and reinstated actor! Good riddance to resigned actresses. Just some ‘jabajaba’ to the complaining members... But of course, they fully support the unofficially banned, physically attacked and then forced to resign actress. They are working really hard to get justice for her. Where were all these excuses when the all-powerful EC banned Sukumaran to Mala to Bhavana to Vinayan to Thilakan to Prithviraj! Now they want a GB to hide behind. This mafia is not going to mend its ways. They are only going from bad to worse. The racket will only rot and decompose. Hope the 400+ members of this racket will someday realise what they have been supporting and will disassociate from this vulgarity and react.”
