Kerala Film Producers Association on Thursday, during a media interaction, claimed that the use of drugs among a section of new generation actors of the Malayalam film industry is quite common. Malayalam film producer Renjith said, "What we wish to say is that the use of drugs, like LSD and such items, is common among a section of new generation actors. We are surprised why the police are not raiding the vans used by such people."

The association also revealed that they banned actor Shane Nigam for his indisciplined manner. For the unversed, Shane was acting in a movie called Veyil. He and the producer Jody George had a spat during the shoot of the flick. Shane had alleged that he received threats from the producer for changing his hairdo. The haircut apparently affected the continuity of the movie. Later, it was resolved under the aegis of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA).

The shooting of this movie had resumed, however, Shane again accused the makers, this time for mistreating him and making him work late into the night. Renjith revealed, "Two films, which are in the production stage, has been scrapped because of his indisciplined behavior. We have decided that no producer will now sign Nigam for now. He will be signed up only after he reimbursed the total production cost of the two films, which he had signed but never bothered to report for the shooting on time." Speaking of Nigam, he is son of a popular mimicry artist and film actor Kalabhavan Abhi. What are your views on the same? Let us know in the comment section below.
