Film chamber slaps one-year ban on Ramya


The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC), including the Directors’ and Producers’ Associations has decided not to approach the actor for any movie for the next one year.

KFCC president Basant Kumar Patil told Deccan Herald that since the actor had made baseless allegations against filmmakers, the chamber has decided not to work with her.

“Ramya had made complaints against some renowned filmmakers, including S V Rajendra Singh Babu. These baseless allegations have tarnished their images,” he alleged.

Patil said veteran actor Ambarish who had become a “troubleshooter” lately, was unaware of the real issue. The issue related to Ganesh’s financial transactions with Ramya could have been sorted out mutually.

Instead, the actor dragged the issue to the public through the media, he said. She could have filed a case against Ganesh if she had all proofs to justify her claims, Patil added.

Producers’ Association president KCN Chandru said the producers, too, have decided not to cooperate with Ramya in future.  Reacting to the development, Ramya said since she has already decided to quit the industry, this ban does not make any difference.  The actor also said she will accept any decision taken by Ambarish.

When contacted, Ambarish said: “I have acted in 192 films. If we were to complain like this, all producers will face the ire. Surely, producers need to treat the artistes with love and shun their egos.”

The row

The whole controversy cropped up when Ramya went public after a spat with  Ganesh, producer of Dandam Dashagunam, who had not repaid Rs 3.7 lakh out of the Rs 10 lakh he had borrowed from the actor.

It is learnt that Ganesh had sent the remaining amount to Ramya through another producer Munirathna. But Ramya is said to have insisted that Ganesh himself should handover the money.
