Thilakan, who has been expelled from AMMA, says that his plight is similar to that of the Chief Minister, Sri. V S Achuthanandan. Thilakan was interacting with media personnel at a face to face session organized by the Indian Medial Forum at Dubai. Thilakan said that when he was denied job opportunities, though the Chief Minister had inquired into the matter, no further action was taken. He accused that the Minister for Culture Sri M A Baby after assuring him that the problem would be solved had merely remained silent. Thilakan would start the shoot of Ali Akbars new film Achan shortly.
