AMMA, WCC promise to work together


The crucial meeting between the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) and three members of the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) took place in Kochi on Tuesday.

The meeting was held in response to the letter issued by artistes Revathy, Padmapriya, and Parvathy on the move to bring back ousted actor Dileep to the association. After an initial discussion of about two hours, AMMA members met the media and told that the concerns raised by the women's group will be considered.

Apart from Revathy, Parvathy and Padmapriya, actor Joy Mathew and actor Shammi Thilakan, son of late actor Thilakan, was also part of the meeting.
