As earlier we reported, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has hit the headlines once again over the decision to revoke Dileep’s suspension. Over more than 105 members from the film industry have filed a petition against Mohanlal to the Kerala government for not allowing him to be a part as the Chief Guest to the annual state film awards to be held in Thiruvananthapuram in August. It is being reported, award-winning actor Prakash Raj, writers N.S. Madhavan, Sethu and Sachidanandan, actress Rima Kallingal and Geethu Mohandas have signed the petition against Mohanlal.
However, Prakash Raj has denied signing any such petition against Mohanlal and that he isn’t even aware of the same. “This is to clarify the news, a news that has been going around that I have signed a memorandum against Mohanlal attending Kerala State Award function, which is false. Not have I signed any such memorandum, nor am I aware of such a memorandum. Yes, I have my differences with the decisions AMMA had taken and I have very clearly told my stands that I don’t accept it. It is insensitive to have taken such a decision. But this news that I am singling out Mohanlal, who is such a statured actor and that I have been part of signing a memorandum is false,” he clarified in a video shared by him on twitter.

Well, Mohanlal has been facing the ire of WCC for revoking the suspension of accused actor Dileep. Dileep’s former wife Manju Warrier, Parvathy, Remya Nambisan and Rima Kallingal of the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) raised their voice against the decision of AMMA.
Meanwhile, a couple of weeks ago during a press meet, Mohanlal defended the decision to take back Dileep by resorting to citing the rulebook. He said, “We had decided suddenly that Dileep had to be ousted as FEFKA and Producers’ Council had taken action against him. Later, this (taking him back) had to be presented at the General Body meeting. When it was presented, no one opposed. No woman, no opposing group said anything against taking Dileep back.”
