Actor Dileep was removed from ‘AMMA’, hours after he was arrested in connection with the abduction and sexual assault of an actress.
The executive committee of Malayalam actors’ guild Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) has taken the decision in this regard. The emergency meeting was held at the residence of actor Mammootty, who is also general secretary of AMMA.
A statement was released announcing AMMA’s decision to expel Dileep from the primary membership of the association. The actor was also the treasurer of AMMA.
It also condemned the actors for making statements against the survivor. Reassuring its full support to the survivor, the association also appreciated the state government and the police for conducting a proper investigation into the case.
The meeting was attended by Mohanlal, Prithviraj, Ramya Nambeesan, Asif Ali, Devan among others to decide the organisation’s action against Dileep. Before attending the meeting, Prithviraj had said that, “I hope AMMA will issue a statement taking every actor’s opinion into consideration and also take necessary action. If it doesn’t happen, I will give my statement on the issue.”
The Kerala Film Producers Association and Film Employees Federation of Kerala (FEFKA) have also suspended Dileep’s primary membership in their organisations.
The AMMA meeting took place amid huge police security as the youth wings of political parties in Kerala were staging a protest outside Mammootty’s residence demanding action against AMMA president Innocent, Mukesh and others accusing them of protecting Dileep for so long.
