Is there nepotism in the Malayalam film industry?/ or casteism in Malayalam films
Kerala was once a place where the worst forms of casteism played out, but today Kerala is a state where caste-based evils have been reduced to an extent in the country. In general, the world of cinema is an area where caste and religion do not hurt many people. However, it is not that there is no casteism in cinema, it is a fact that there is only half of the casteism in society. The main reason for that is that the general public will know about the events happening there through the media. But earlier there was a big allegation that there is strong casteism in the Malayalam film world. Actor Tilakan has come out strongly against it. He had always said that he tried to put him down because he is from a lower caste. Thilakan had said then that for avoiding him from the cinema, the Nair lobby meeting was held once in Thiruvananthapuram as well. But at the same time, he grew up to be the most talented actor in Malayalam cinema through this same industry is an unforgettable fact.
ofcourse, like any other industry many of the current actors are star kids like Prithviraj Sukumaran, Indrajith Sukumaran, Dulquer Salman, Shammi Thilakan, Gokul Suresh,Pranav Mohanlal, Kalidasan, and other so many actors but till now we don’t get any sign of Of nepotism in Malayalam film industry, not even any actors mention about that.
But there are some reports about casteism in Malayalam cinema, some others say the film field is the only place where there is no caste. But there are strong allegations against some actors that they are playing caste cards in Malayalam movies. But we can’t confirm it in any way, after all, we are humans, and living in a society where caste and creed still exist there may be possibilities that such things may happen, read the below story you may get a little more clarity about the subject.
Oh, then Mammootty is from an upper Hindu cast? Maybe because of that he became a superstar – the actor gave a befitting reply
Now what is being discussed again is immortal actor Nedumudivenu’s response to a media allegation that there is a Nair lobby in Malayalam cinema. He has played caste card in movies and is one of the most accused actors, the Nair lobby is based in Thiruvananthapuram and the head of it is Nedumudi Venu. He gave strong examples against this. Nedumudi’s side says that such allegations are pure lies. If that is the case, will the actor Mammootty become a superstar here because he is a member of the Nair community? and how he and his son Dulquer Salmaan are the leading actors here?
So how did Tovino, Fahadh, and Nivin Pauly, who are today’s new generation stars, become great stars? Nedumudi Venu had said at that time that talking about the Nair lobby and Ezhava lobby without any evidence or convictions would only lead to division in the society. He also reminds us that Vayalar and Bhaskaranmash, who wrote the most keerthans and devotional songs in Malayalam, were tainted atheists. He also asks whether Ganagandharvan Yesudas became a great singer through this Malayalam movie because they were all Nayars ? .
Cinema is beyond caste and religion. He reminds us that the Malayalam cinema sector is the only film sector in the country without caste and religious divisions, and many celebrity marriages have taken place in Malayalam cinema without the barriers of caste and religion.
Nedumudi Venu’s words are true that caste, religion, and its walls have been changed to a large extent in cinema; But we cannot completely agree with it. Of course, there are many vile things taking place there, and even though we are talking about such experiences, we can get so many or more experiences if we look deeply. Of course, it is acceptable that caste thinking has been confined to the human mind and its application in public spaces has declined, but we still have a long way to go. It is good not to forget that we live in a country where inter-caste and inter-religion marriages still result in honor killings.
Who controls the Malayalam film industry?
Definitely, the superstars have a strong influence in every film industry then it will be Mohanlal Mammootty they are the superstar of the industry. But some reports suggest that actor Dileep has strong connections and influence in the industry and he was involved in many stars’ bans and other disciplinary actions, but later the actor himself rejected such allegations and he is now completely withdrawn from all of his positions in the film industry and its organization. but if you tell this technically AMMA association was the supreme commandant,This is an association of Malayalam actor, and producer association FEFKA.
