Thiruvananthapuram, March 14: The Kerala Film Chamber has decided to ban actress Rima Kallingal’s films because she is doing a TV show for a Malayalam channel, disregarding a recent notice of the chamber.
A warning was given recently by the chamber to mainstream stars who are involved with reality shows on TV channels.
Besides Rima, the list includes Siddique, Archana Kavi, Suraj Venjaramoodu and Kaniha.
All the others, except Rima, replied to the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) and the Kerala Film Chamber, and therefore the chamber has decided to take strong action against her.
Any of her movies will neither be produced, nor released after May 15.
Malayalam superstar Suresh Gopi, who is also anchoring a show for a channel, said he will not sign any movie while doing a TV show.
Jagadeesh said he has already acquired consent from the Kerala Film Chamber as he has to cooperate with the channel he has signed a contract with.
Cricket team for Malayalam singers too
Malayalam actors and directors already have a cricket team and now musicians have formed Cochin Music Challengers, which includes playback singers and composers.
The aim of the team is to raise funds to help music artists in need of aid. It was singers Afsal and Madhu Balakrishnan, who floated the idea to form a cricket team four years back during a stage show.
A year ago they started a team named C3. Ramesh Babu is the captain, while Prakash Babu holds the vice captain’s position in the team.
Other team members include musicians, singers from film field and various
channels. Some of them are keyboard players as well as singers.
Vinay Fort in ‘Rasputin’
Vinay Fort, who entered the film world through Shyamaprasad’s “Ritu”, has done meaty roles in “Prabhuvinte Makkal” and “Shutter”. He will now play unique role in the movie “Rasputin”.
He plays the son of a very strict father, who warns him even against talking to girls. Hence, Vinay’s character loses self-confidence and finds it very difficult to start a conversation with any girl.
But in a strange situation, his character is forced to accompany women. The opportunity changes his life.
Actors like Aju Varghese, Vandana, Archana and Sreenath Bhasi will be seen supporting Vinay in this humour-based movie.
Joy Mathew, director of “Shutter”, plays the father. The shooting of the movie is taking place in Kochi.
