A minor controversy that began with Kannada actress Ramya skipping a promotional event of her film Dhandam Dhashagunam and later snowballed into an all-out war between the producers and actors’ associations has now ended with an amicable settlement.
It all started when producer A Ganesh accused Ramya of non-cooperation in promoting the film, leading to a one-year ban on the actress by Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC). The matter did not end there as Kannada Film Artistes’ Association (KFAA) jumped to Ramya’s defence and declared a boycott of producer A Ganesh.
The standoff ended on Thursday when senior actor Ambreesh mediated. A meeting between the representatives of KFCC and KFAA was called at the actor’s residence.
The tiff ended when producer A Ganesh handed over the money to Ramya in the presence of Ambreesh and the members of the two associations. The ban on Ramya was revoked and the boycott of producer Ganesh was also called off.
It was the most amicable solution to the situation that had left many tense in the Kannada film industry lately.
