The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) – has now issued an advisory for the safety of women artists. The association has urged all concerned to ensure the safety of female artists who travel at night. This association which represents all actors and actresses of the Malayalam film industry has also taken an important decision to provide legal assistance for the actress who had been recently abducted by a ”quotation” gang. The core members of the committee have assured total co-operation with the investigating authorities in this regard.
This decision assumes importance, given the fact that rumors have been spreading like wild fire that leading actors and prominent individuals in the film industry are behind this attack on the actress.
In fact, Kaithapram Damodaran Namboodiri, a well-known lyricist and musician, had told reporters last evening that a leading actor is involved in this abduction and molestation case.
Also, Kerala police have launched a thorough crackdown on the growing nexus between criminals, drug racket gangs and quotation gangs with the Malayalam film industry. There are local channel reports of ”shadow police” being stationed at several shooting locations.
