Kamal sorry for comment, backs resigned actresses

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM July 3: Director and Chalachithra Academy Chairman Kamal has said sorry for his comment against certain members in AMMA.
 
Kamal had said that in AMMA, there are more than 500 members but only 50 among them are in the acting field and all the rest are people who cling to the organisation to derive several benefits from the organisation.
 
Soon after this comment, many AMMA members including senior members like Madhu, Janardhanan, KPAC Lalitha and Kaviyoor Ponnamma had come out to criticise Kamal.
 
In his reply he said, “I apologise, if my statements have hurt senior members. I didn’t react as a Chalachithra Academy chairman.
 
I remarks were misquoted. I’m not going to respond to the decision to re-induct Dileep. That is their internal issue but I extend my full support to actresses who had resigned from AMMA,” Kamal clarified to media persons.
