THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Director Dr Biju has relinquished his Chalachitra Academy General Council membership. Yesterday he informed the above decision to Academy Chairman Kamal and Culture department minister.
He said there was some moral issues while sending his films for awards and film festivals and hence he decided to quit the membership.
At the same time Biju has rendered all his support to the academy, any time in future. Biju, who was back here after completing his film ‘Sound of Silence’ in Hindi-Tibet-Pahari languages, will be going to Kazakhstan shortly. In the film fest there, Biju’s ‘Kadu pookkunna neram’ will be screened. It is the only Malayalam film which had gained Oscar entry.
