Megastar Mammootty is said to have decided to quit his position as General Secretary of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA).
Mammootty explained that he is facing difficulties in serving the position as he has continuous shooting. It is also said that he thinks that youngsters can handle the general secretary's position better. However, there were reports that Mohanlal would be chosen as the new president of AMMA.
The current president, Innocent, will complete his term this year. Thus elections are scheduled for the end of June. Now reports have emerged that Mohanlal is set to become the president of AMMA.
Meanwhile, following the sexual harassment on the Kerala actress another organisation was set up for women. So, this organisation will also see its first election.
The molestation case of the actress brought the issues inside AMMA organisation out in the open. Both Prithviraj and Ramya Nambesan might be sacked from AMMA as they spoke regarding the issue even before AMMA took a decision on it. Remya Nambeesan and Prithviraj had openly supported the actress. In addition, both these actors had raised their voice against AMMA for not taking necessary actions for the actress.
Reports suggest that Prithviraj and Remya Nambesan are likely to be expelled from AMMA because their statements showed AMMA in the bad light. A decision in this regard will be taken after the General Body meeting of the organisation on June 24.
Meanwhile, Mammootty, the current general secretary, has also announced that he too will quit his position. Will this help him become the president or he too is disappointed with AMMA is not known yet.
