Kerala Film Producers’ Association (KFPA) on Tuesday imposed a temporary ban on the Malayalam actor Sreenath Bhasi for allegedly misbehaving with the female anchor during an interview.
Reportedly, the 34-year-old actor was giving an interview for a YouTube channel for his upcoming film, Chattambi. During the interview, the actor got furious at a question asked by the anchor, and he started abusing her and the crew members.
Following this, the anchor lodged a complaint with the KFPA. Based on the complaint, Maradu Police arrested the Bheeshma Parvam actor.
The actor was produced before the KFPA on Tuesday. He was released on bail, but he has been temporarily banned from working in films. However, the actor was permitted to complete the shooting of his ongoing films or other projects.
M Ranjith, a president of KFPA told that Bhasi had accepted his mistake and that’s why they are limiting the disciplinary action to a temporary ban.
Another complaint has been filed with KFPA alleging that the actor broke the terms of their contract by taking home an additional fee for the film. Renjith said Bhasi had agreed to reimburse the additional fee.
