Of late, Movie Artists’ Association (MAA) has been besieged by a lot of controversies and now, fresh allegations have cropped up regarding irregularities in the use of funds.Recently, English dailies have been especially focusing on this aspect.We had reported earlier that one of the primary accusations is that there has been corruption regarding the overseas programmes of MAA in connection with the silver jubilee celebrations and the names of actor Srikanth and Shivaji Raja are being mentioned in this regard.
Actor Senior Naresh who is the secretary of MAA has got into action now. With the media blasting MAA over the allegations, Naresh went to MAA office, took all the office records and locked them safely.He then requested for an urgent meeting to discuss the negative image that MAA is getting in the media and the reasons for it.Among the many complaints against MAA are that it has been holding numerous press meets like never before and spending a lot of money unnecessarily.
Another point that will be discussed in the meeting today is Prabhas and Mahesh Babu’s overseas’ programmes along with reports of corruption regarding the rights to Chiranjeevi’s overseas’ programmes.The elections to MAA will be held again in 2019 and Sivaji Raja is likely to contest for another term as President. If that should happen, then what MAA needs is to clean up its act.
