THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA), which had recently warned of decisive action against Thilakan, went soft on the thespian and gave him a space of another two weeks to respond to its notice. When the AMMA disciplinary committee met last time and suspended Thilakan, it had set March 8 as the deadline for Thilakan to come before it.
AMMAs executive committee did not even respond to Thilakan�s letter in which he had expressed his reservations about the disciplinary committee.
The letter was delivered to the AMMA office at Thycaud here by Thilakan�s daughter, Sonia. AMMA, instead of kicking up another verbal duel, decided to send Thilakan a new letter, one that perhaps reflects the association�s new stance.
��Thilakan is not a kind of actor who can be easily distanced from AMMA. So we are giving him more time to explain his actions,�� AMMA general secretary Mohanlal told reporters after the AMMA executive meeting held here on Monday
