Because Bigwigs were involved in Sri Reddy issue, MAA took an U-Turn?:
MAA Membership for Sri Reddy:
As President of MAA, Shivaji Raja offered application form to Sri Reddy when she expressed her wish to be a Member. A call will be taken on such applications in the Executive Meetingâ€¦That's the system MAA follows. After Sri Reddy stripped, An emergency Executive Meeting was convened and the decision to deny Membership has been taken. We will now consider her request in the General Body Meeting
Movie Artist Association on Thursday convened a Press Meet to react on Sri Reddy's issue. Have a look at Q&As...
50 Percent of Members in the panel will be outsiders. Their Names will be announced after finalizing the list. Anybody who faced injustice, even if he/she isn't a member of any film body, can approach the committee to file a complaint.
It's not good if we keep on expressing such doubts on every measure. To do justice to everyone, We are including outsiders in the Committee. Peddavalaithe Ekkuva Kadu - Chinnavalaithe Thakkuva Kadu! 10 Industry People & 10 Outsiders (Members of NGOs, Women Organisations, Lawyers) will be part of the panel.
Role of Coordinators in hiring Actors & Technicians from Other Industries:
MAA raised this issue four months ago. We have already offered counselling once. We will try to address it by holding discussions with the concerned people.
