According to various reports, the AMMA management have done an Ammayi-Amma on Meera Jasmine for not finding time for their pet project. According to the new fatwa, Meera is not be cast in any Malayalam movie till the AMMA ban is lifted. Then as they say, the universe finds a way to provide justice.
The first one was for Mohanlal, who was scheduled to do the Burning Man illusion in Chandrasekharan Nair Stadium, Trivandrum, on April 27 as a prelude to the international magic festival, â€˜Vismayam 2008.â€™ This irritated a bunch of magicians and they protested this. According to Innocent, a random human being:
I spoke to him and he said if he withdraws now it would be considered as an act of cowardice. There is certainly an element of risk in this (act). As the president (of the association) and in my personal opinion, ,he should withdraw. If not, we will take action against him”.[Mohanlal wilts under pressure, withdraws from stunt act]
So there are enough people to take action against one human being who wants to do one magic trick. In fact, the high profile stunt by Mohanlal would have given a big boost to the magic show, but the magicians are worried that if every Tom, Dick and Mohanlal did magic stunts it would lose its charm. We agree with Mohanlal when he said, “It is a person’s choice to learn and practise an art and it is up to no one to stop them.” But finally he gave into pressure and instead did a new magic trick – the Vanishing act.
So the lives of superstars are no different from the lives of ordinary people. Our lives are messed up by eunuchs from various political parties and the lives of stars are upset by dust particles. The next one at the receiving end of an ideologically motivated group is Mammootty. The superstar was in discussions with Microsoft to launch an e-literacy program and it has upset the Free Software Community in the state. They wrote a letter saying, â€œPeople of Kerala will be bewildered to see that you are lending your name and fame to support a devastatingly nefarious techno-monopolistic campaign unleashed by Microsoft in our State,â€ It is just a matter of time before the Communist part tells the Chairman of Kairali Channel what rights he has.
Blogger MKT wrote about this recently.
A mallu ardently believes that his is the right opinion. He thinks rest of the opinions are junk. It does not stop there. As he believes he has the right opinion he is busy convincing the next guy to accept his opinion. We would have been one of the richest nations if they were paying to watch us argue.
AMMA has an opinion on Meera’s life. Magicians have an opinion on what arts Mohanlal should learn. Free Software folks have an opinion on what Mammootty should promote. Having disagreements is fine, but using various techniques to pressurize the other person from preventing doing what he thinks is right, is like the Achyutanandan with the vetti-nirathal mentality. It is time we moved out of this cave man attitude and accepted that even though we may disagree with others, they have the freedom to do what they like.
