The latest updates from the Malayalam film industry.
Actress Bhama recently came under the media scanner when reports started doing the rounds that she wasn't allowed to leave a private inaugural function midway.
'According to the terms, I was supposed to be paid Rs. 2.5 lakh for inaugurating the shop. Out of this, an amount of Rs 1 lakh was promised as advance. The rest of the amount was to be handed over in cash before the inaugural function,' she explained in her Facebook post.
'But only an amount of Rs 15,000 came to my account as advance. But as a professional, I deemed it as my duty to attend the function and I expected that the promised amount would be handed over when I reach the premises for the function.'
She says that a person, who claimed to be the Managing Director of a Celebrity Management agency, was behind this fraudulent act.
'I request my well wishers not to believe the canards spread against me in this regard,' she added.
Why Jayasurya is thrilled!
"It was my greatest dream to do a Siddique-Lal film. I never gave rest to God with my prayers and here it is... Just after a meeting with Siddique, offering me his new production company’s maiden venture, I got a call from Lal where I was offered the lead in his next film,” says Jayasurya.
Siddique and Lal have found amazing success in the past as a writer-director duo before they split.
Siddique continued as a writer-director doing many films, including the Bollywood blockbuster Bodyguard starring Salman Khan.
Lal became an actor and also produced and directed films.
The duo came together recently, writing the screenplay for King Liar, which was directed by Lal and starred Dileep.
Siddique has launched his production banner S Talkies and has announced projects with Jayasurya and Dileep.
Lal’s project with Jayasurya is being scripted by Sachy.
Prithviraj’s lovey-dovey message to his wife
In a romantic message posted on his Facebook page, actor Prithviraj has thanked his wife Supriya on completing five years of marriage.
Here is his post:
'It's been 5 years today since I got married to Supriya in a small private ceremony in Palakkad. Like all phases of life..this one too has had its share of ups and downs..but through all those..especially when I thought life had challenged me with rather unfair odds at times, I had my best friend by my side..my wife! So I guess it's fair to say a big THANK YOU to the best thing that's happened to me.
'Thank you Supriya for being who you are and for giving birth to the biggest happiness in my life. I love you!'
