A Kerala minister on Sunday urged the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) to look into the grievances raised by actresses. The Women's Collective in Cinema (WCC) has raised concerns over how AMMA, led by superstar Mohanlal, has handled the case involving the kidnapping of an actress.

The Kerala government will step in if the need arises, State Minister for Law, Cinema and Culture, A K Balan said. "Now that the WCC has raised issues, in all fairness, AMMA should look into it and sort out it," said Balan. Women from various sectors of the film industry had formed WCC last year to fight for their cause, after they found that AMMA was not protecting their interests.

Senior actor Dileep is an accused in a kidnapping case that took place last year. The actor was in jail for 85 days and is now out on bail.
