The executive committee of organisations affiliated to
the Kerala Film Chamber, has decided to freeze all activities
relating to production, distribution and exhibition of
films from June 15, 2004, if the state government fails
to act on the Memorandum submitted to it by the chamber,
by then. This was announced at a press conference in Kochi,
after its meeting on April 19, 2004.
president Siyad Koker warned that the members of Association
of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA), who are scheduled
to take part in the month-long star show in Dubai from
April 28, would face a boycott in all future film projects
of the chamber.
said, ''The chamber holds that all top-ranking artistes
should desist from taking part in such shows.'' Welcoming
the move of AMMA members like Lalu Alex, Suresh Krishna
and Thilakan, Siyad said the Chamber will co operate with
any artiste who is willing to sign the new set of agreements
introduced by it.
Francis of Kerala Film Exhibitors Association and Sasikumar,
president of Kerala Film Distributors Association, were
also present at the press meet
