Veteran actor Mohanlal was unanimously elected as president of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) for the third time, at its meeting held in Kochi on Wednesday. Though Mohanlal will continue as president, there will be a change in the other key positions within the actors’ body.
Idavela Babu, who has served as AMMA’s general secretary for several years now, will resign and a new general secretary will be elected during the general body meeting, which will be held on June 30. Actors Siddique, Kukku Parameshwaram and Unni Sivapal will contest for the post. Jagadish, Jayan Cherthala and Manju Pillai, meanwhile, are in the fray for the post of AMMA vice-president. Actors Shwetha Menon and Maniyanpillai Raju hold the posts currently.
Announcing his decision to step down from the actors’ body, Idavela Babu had earlier told Manorama News that Mohanlal would continue as AMMA president. He also said he was happy to give up the post of general secretary after serving the association for nearly three decades.
