KOLLAM: Training guns on the unholy nexus between quotation gangs and film personalities, the actor-turned politician K B Ganesh Kumar MLA alleged that some actors do use the help of such gangs for personal interests and to assert their strength in Malayalam film industry.

Reacting to the incident in which an actress was allegedly molested by a group of people in Kochi, Ganesh Kumar said even though such incidents had occurred in the past they had gone unreported. 


“The menace of quotation gangs inside the industry had exceeded the limits. It is high time they are wiped out. Otherwise, I fear  our industry will soon become a replica of Bollywood, which had witnessed a triangular formula of underworld-cinema-real estate. The friendly face of film industry has become a thing of past.

Now, some are using quotation gangs to settle scores. The thriving presence of drug mafia is also a matter of concern,” Ganesh Kumar told reporters. 


While stating that the suspect (Pulsar Suni) have a history of exploiting people, mainly women, financially and physically, the MLA said he had revealed the gory picture of the industry to the Chief Minister. 


“The situation is real and we must accept it. There is no point in being upset with me for speaking the truth,” he said.
