Manju – Dileep to separate?
Date : June 12, 2013 | Time : 2:58:00 PM
Reports taking rounds in the media suggest that Manju and Dileep have jointly decided to separate. It’s further indicated that their families had discussed the matter a couple of weeks back. It all started with Dileep’s denial of Mnju’s plans to pursue dancing vigorously. A conciliatory move made by their friend also didn’t bear fruit.
Their daughter Meenakshi will have all the rights to decide, to whom to stay with. It’s also heard that she likes to be with her father.
Last month when Dileep visited Australia, Meenakshi alone accompanied him and Manju stayed back. She went to her parents’ home in Trissur.
During the inauguration of the new restaurant of Dileep in Edappally, only Meenakshi was present and Manju didn’t turn up.
Manju has reportedly stated in an interview that it was when she was at the peak of her acting career that she left the field and got wedded. She is actually regretting that now.
The entire matter could be settled without much fuss if Dileep allows her to continue with her dancing career. She is reported to have told Dileep that she doesn’t intend to go back to movies now.
Manju with her own website
Date : June 8, 2013 | Time : 10:00:00 AM
Kochi: Manju enters the cyber world with her own website. Very soon official face book page also set up. On the third stage, she is going to appear as a blog writer too. Her entry into the cyber world is marked with the denial of the news about her come back to the movie dome through Geethu Mohandas’s movie.
www.manjuwarrier.com is her web address. This will announce her multi faceted talents in detail. Her brilliant dancing carrier along with her acting talents will also be included. Video clips of her hit movies and dance shows also will be part of the site. Through face book visitors could interact with her. In another ten days all these features will be ready in the website. In her unofficial face book she already has over three lakhs fans.
Even after leaving the film world years back, she still remains fully present in the news. And there were some bad rumours about her marital life. That even went to the extent of saying that Manju and Dileep are separated and she has started living with her parents in Trissur. But she has stated emphatically in her website that they are still living in their own house at Alwaye with their daughter Meenakshi.
The same International Agency C A Media which organizes and runs the websites of Amitabh Bachan and Salman Khan is taking care of Mnju’s website too.
The news that Manju is acting in Geethu’s picture is totally baseless, says Geethu Mohandas. Geethu was reacting to the news taking rounds in the internet.
“I have never even thought of directing a movie in Malayalam. Manju is a close friend of mine. That’s all. Whatever takes rounds in the internet is nothing but hearsay” said Geethu.
“I am at the moment busy with the post production work of a Hindi movie. Over and above this I have to look after my baby too” said Geethu.

Ministerial Discussion did take place – says Chennithala.
Date : June 10, 2013 | Time : 10:00:00 AM
Trivandrum: Ramesh Chennithala said that discussions have taken place regarding his ministerial berth. But he was not ready to reveal the details. He is unable to say if he will become a minister. The topic is under the consideration of the High command. So he has limitations to say something in public.
“I’m not after positions of power. KPCC President’s position is definitely greater than many others. I’m really sorry for the controversy created in this regard. High command will take a proper decision at the right time” said Chennithala. He was speaking at the Press Club on a topic ‘contemporary politics and Kerala development.
“Regarding the controversy I have my own opinion. I will say that at the right time at the right place. I have a place in the minds of the common people. That can not be nullified by anyone. It is not the policy of the Congress to confront the communal organizations. I I haven’t complained to anyone regarding phone taping” he added.
Trivandrum: The Chief Minister is going to Delhi to solve the problem regarding the Deputy Chief Minister ship. Chief MIninster Ummen Chandi has asked for an appointment with Sonia Gandhi. He is expecting to see her on Monday.
The Congress is trying to bring Ramesh Chennithala as the Deputy Chief Mininster into the cabinet. But, for this AICC permission is a must. At present only in Maharastra this post is there. This is held by an alliance partner. In no other state one can find a post like this. So the party considers this as a policy matter. Now the party is trying to get an exemption, considering the peculiar situation in Kerala.
Congress had never expected a claim from the Muslim League for this post. In fact, P K Kunjalikutty had already stated publicly that they don’t raise any claim for this Deputy Chief Minister’s post. This is why Ramesh and Ummen Chandy went ahead seriously with this discussion. But all of a sudden League took an about-turn saying that if such a post is there it should be their’s.
Now it has become the responsibility of Ummen Chandy to settle the matter with the League and get the green signal from the High Comand. Both these tasks must go in parallel. It is for this, that Ummen Chandy is going to Delhi next week. High Command has taken the stand that they shall interfere in the matter once it is settled on the state level with all sections involved.
But the ‘I’ group has suggested that they are happy if Ramesh is given the Home dept: instead of going after the problem of Deputy Chief Minister ship. But ‘A’ group cannot even think of giving away the Home dept:.
Both ‘A’ and ‘I’ groups are eagerly waiting for the High Command’s reaction. Both sides are waiting for the decision to come from Delhi.

At the same time Sreesanth’s advocates are planning to approach the High Court to get the case totally quashed.
The Saketh court while granting bail to Sreesanth and others had clearly stated that there was absolutely no evidence available, to invoke ‘Mcoca’ on the accused. The court, in fact, had severely criticized the police for trying to invoke ‘Mcoca’. It’s under these circumstances that the police are thinking of approaching the High Court for cancelling the bail order. The police are still of the opinion that there is nothing wrong in invoking ‘Mcoca’ against Sreesanth and Ankith Chavan. They still feel that according to sub section 1a of section 1 of ‘Mcoca’ Sreesanth could be tried as a culprit. A decision will be taken in this regard by the end of the week.

He was arrested on May 16th. 12 days he spent in police custody. After that he got transferred to judicial custody in Tihar Jail. The court criticized severely the invoking of ‘Mcoca’ by the police and granted bail to all who applied for it.
The court observed that prima facie there is no evidence to invoke ‘Mcoca’ against the accused. The other alleged crimes like conspiracy, breach or trust and cheating are also not sustainable, the court added. Sreesanths advocate Pinacky Misra opposed tooth and nail; the imposition of ‘Mcoca’ on the accused.
‘I’m confident of proving my innocence since I have done nothing wrong. And I have enough confidence in the court and the legal proces of the nation. Anyway I’m very much happy that I’m free now.

—————————————————————————————————————————————— Sreesanth to come out of the jail today. To return home on Wednesday
Date : June 11, 2013 | Time : 10:00:00 AM
New Delhi: Sreesanth will be freed today. He got bail yesterday from the IPL betting case. The formalities to be completed take a lot of time. That is the reason for the postponement of the journey back home to tomorrow.
The Saketh Sessions court had granted bail to all the eighteen accused including Sreesanth yesterday, on the ground that there was no evidence produced, to invoke ‘Mcoca’ on them. It was after long arguments in the court lasting over seven and a half hours that the court granted them bail with certain conditions. Two sureties and a personal bond of Rs: 50,000 were the conditions. In addition, they are barred from going out of the country. They have to surrender their Passport in the court. The Additional Sessions Judge Vinay Kumar Khanna said that the police failed to produce clear evidence to show that the accused had indulged in conspiracy, breach of trust and cheating.
During the arguments, the police failed to give clear answers to the judge’s several questions. Ankith Chavan and Jiju Janardanan also got bail yesterday. Ajith Chandila had not filed a bail application.
New Delhi: Eighteen accused including Sreesanth were granted bail in the IPL match fixing case by the Saketh court of New Delhi. They have to execute a surety of two people and a bond of RS: 50,000. The imposition of ‘mcoca’ on Sreesanth is illegal, observed the court. The court criticized the police severely for imposing ‘mcoca’ on Sreesanth without enough evidence.
The police argued that the economic crime described in ‘mcoca’ has taken place. But the police failed prove that such a crime has occurred. The Prosecutor could not give a clear reply to questions asked by the court. It was under these circumstances that the court granted bail to Sreesanth and all the other accused. The bail is conditional. The accused can not leave the country. They have to surrender their Passports to the court.
Hyderabad: The ousted participant of Malayali House, Santosh Pandit remains stay put at Hyderabad itself refusing to return to Kerala. He is waiting for a re-entry into the show. Santosh revealed this to the private news channel ‘Reporter on live’.
He was the most favourite participant of the show and his ouster was based on certain wrong assessments, he said. This is what he has known from the SMSs he received. And the SMSs are a reflection of his popularity among the viewers.
Anyway, he is not sad about his ouster, as he is quite busy with his new movie ‘Minimolude Achan’. He is on the final touches of this movie. Once this is over he is ready to start his next movie ‘Kalidasan Kavitha Ezhuthukayanu’. It was from the midst on these chores that he came to Kerala House. So leaving it is not that worrisome for him.
Ashitha, Bindu, Bala and Harisankar were the other people who were eliminated from the show along with Santosh Pandit. It was only after his actual ouster that he knew, he was liked by many of the general viewers. Some participants of the show didn’t even have sufficient morals or ethics, he felt. He expressed his inability to teach these guys ethics and morals.
Santosh Pandit has a bad reputation of having misbehaved in many of his previous TV interviews. But in Malayali House he was very well-behaved and that made him a favourite of the viewers. When many of the old respected participants lost their respect with this show Santosh regained his lost respect. That way he is thankful to this show.
Kochi: Surya TV was forced to call back Santosh Pandit, eliminated in the first round from the popular realty show Malayali House. His elimination was a hot subject of discussion for about a week all over Kerala and in the internet. Even those who were against Santosh Pandit before, also turned his supporters after seeing Malayali House.
Santosh Pandit had alleged that he was a victim of group dynamics in the show. When this was known to everybody, the public demand to bring him back to the show grew large. Many social networking sites including face book raised the same demand. In the end he was called back by Surya.
Surya started showing visuals announcing Santosh’s come-back. In this advt:, Santosh was shown as a magician landing the stage in the traditional magician’s attire.
News is taking rounds that it was for increasing the rating of the show that he was called back. When the real image of many participants was visible in the show Santosh’s decent behavior was lauded by almost every one.
