Film actor Thilakan lodged a complaint about threat to his life with the Alappuzha South police station on Friday.
According to the police, Thilakan lodged a complaint at 9.45 p.m. on Friday stating that he had received a call at 9 p.m. from a number suspected to be from the United Arab Emirates warning him against raising allegations against Mammootty. He claimed the caller said that ‘quotation’ (contractual agreement) had been given to an Ernakulam-based known offender, Thamannam Shaji, to kill him within a week.
The Alappuzha South police have registered a case. They said the information had been passed on to the Cyber Cell in Thiruvananthapuram. The caller is yet to be traced.
PTI adds: The Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) had served a show-cause notice on Thilakan for his remarks against superstars and warned him of disciplinary action if his reply was not satisfactory.
Thilakan said he was drafting a reply to the AMMA notice.
“It is ironic that they gave me the notice after deciding the punishment,” Thilakan said.
