Mohnish Singh |Apr 26, 2020

Kamal is one of the most prominent filmmakers in the Malayalam film industry. He has several notable films to his credit.

Kamal, who is a well-known filmmaker of Mollywood with several notable films in his filmography, has suddenly found himself in the middle of a controversy. The renowned filmmaker has been accused of sexual harassment by an actor.

However, Kamal has called all the allegations baseless. The filmmaker also adds that it is nothing but a propaganda against him to malign his image. Kamal last directed the Manju Warrier starrer Aami (2018). Besides being a filmmaker of great repute, he is also the chairman of Kerala State Chalchitra Academy.

Several media outlets report that the young Malayalam actress has claimed that Kamal had sought sexual favours from her in return for the lead role in his next film, titled Pranaya Meenukalude Kadal. The actress also added that the incident happened during the shoot of the filmmaker’s last release Aami in 2018.

When a popular daily reached out to Kamal, he said that it is a baseless allegation. The filmmaker admitted that it is true that he had received a legal notice a year ago and when he contacted his advocate, the advocate said that since it was a false allegation, he needed to wait for follow-up action from the other party. That did not happen and so he ignored it.

The filmmaker added that all this is a planned propaganda against him. He told the daily that he suspects a former employee of Chalchitra Academy is behind bringing this up now. He had quit his position due to some internal conflicts. Only his advocate and the former employee knew about the legal notice that was received a year ago. However, the filmmaker says that he does not have enough evidence to prove that the former employee is behind it.

The complainant told an online publication that she was also sexually abused on the sidelines of the shoot of the film Aami, directed by Kamal. He took her to a flat and abused her. She added that the filmmaker has betrayed her trust in him and he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. She said she was also abused at his official residence.
