Kochi: The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (A.M.M.A) has sought explanation from actor Shammy Thilakan over the disciplinary action taken against him. Shammy Thilakan reacted that he has responded on the matter and will appear before the disciplinary committee online.
AMMA decided to take action against actor Shammy Thilakan for violating forum discipline. The decision was taken against him for videotaping the AMMA general body meeting held at Kochi in 2021 and publishing social media posts against the office-bearers of the forum.
Shammy has been vocal against the organisation through social media and mainstream media. He even called AMMA a mafia gang. The members expressed strong protest against such comments of Shammy and an executive committee has been appointed to take action on the matter, said Siddique.
There was a rumour that Shammy was ousted from the association during the general body meeting. AMMA dismissed the rumours by saying that Shammy is still a part of the association and that the general body does not hold the power to expel a member. The officials said that the action to be taken will be decided in the next executive meeting and that Shammy’s side will be heard before that.
