Actor Mohanlal, newly inducted president of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA), on Monday said actor Dileep will remain outside the organisation till his innocence is proved in the case of alleged sexual assault and kidnapping of a woman actor.
Stating that the decision taken at the general body meeting on June 24 to reinstate Dileep was unanimous, he said that Dileep himself had stated that he no longer wished to be part of the organisation.
Pointing out that the attacked actress was never isolated, Mohanlal said that the actress had not filed a complaint to the Association.
He also said that no member of the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) attended the general body meeting, where the issue pertaining to Dileep’s ouster was included under the agenda for discussion.
When asked about the demand of WCC for calling an executive council meeting, he said that the WCC has written to us and a decision on it will be taken soon.
