KOCHI: Actor and Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) president Mohanlal on Saturday ruled out any vested interest behind the decision to reinstate actor Dileep in the association. In the AMMA general body meeting held on June 26, the general consensus was to freeze the suspension of Dileep, Mohanlal said in a statement. “The AMMA leadership has taken a democratic stand to support the common consensus of its members. Apart from this, the AMMA leadership has no vested interest or favoured stand in the matter,” he stated.

“The members of the film fraternity were the first to feel the pain and take up the matter when one of our colleagues was attacked. Since then, the entire fraternity has been standing by our sister,” he said. 
He said even before AMMA’s decision was officially conveyed to Dileep, some personalities whom we respect came out in the open opposing AMMA’s decision. He said the association is ready to hear from the people who have severed ties with AMMA recently.

“Some of the people who took part in the general body meeting have quit the organisation raising opposition against the decision. We are ready to look into the reason behind their decision. Rectification is possible from all sides. Disagreement can be turned into agreements. Let’s avoid people who intend to destroy this association,” he said. Mohanlal claimed AMMA has 485 members and half of them are facing financial problems. There are several members who have no house of their own and many find it hard to make both ends meet. The association is supporting 137 such members by providing support on a monthly basis. AMMA has also decided to construct a house for the family of Kollam Ajith, who passed away recently.
