S Durga Director Sanal Sasidharan Has Quit Filmmaking and Migrated to the US. He Accuses Malayalam Industry of Money Laundering and Sex Crimes: Bollywood News – Bollywood Hungama





Malayalam director Sanal Sasidharan, whose 2014 film S Durga created a huge buzz, is now scrambling to release his farewell film Vazhakkuof which Sanal claims that the film’s lead actor Tovino Thomas is hindering its release.

S Durga director Sanal Sasidharan has quit filmmaking and migrated to the US. He accuses the Malayalam industry of money laundering and sex crimes

Tovino has vehemently denied this and said that release would be in his interest Vazhakku since he is the producer of the project.

When this writer met the filmmaker in the US, he shocked me when he said he had given up filmmaking and the country. “I stopped making films a few years ago. My last film was Vazhakkuwhich is currently in the news for all the wrong reasons,” he said.

Why did Sanal take such a drastic decision? He replied: “Too many threats. If I had continued to stay in Kerala and do films, I probably would have lost my life. I was threatened by all kinds of media. I have been living in the USA for several years (the name of the city is not mentioned). I’m no longer a filmmaker. In fact, I don’t know who I am anymore.”

Sanal, who made an impressive, scary film about sexual harassment, is called S DurgaHe himself was accused of the same crime. “A false allegation of sexual harassment was made against me. I was arrested one morning in May 2022. Then I decided to leave the country. You will be surprised that two years have passed and no case has been filed against me yet. No legal process, nothing. It is very disturbing that I have been cornered by those interested in the Malayalam film industry,” he said.

Who are these stakeholders? Sanal said, “There is a money laundering machine in the Malayalam film industry. Films that are claimed to have been made for Rs 100 Crores actually cost no more than Rs 10 million. 15-20 crores. Who in the Malayalam industry has that much money? Money laundering is supported by influential politicians, so no one asks questions. I did. And look where I ended up.”

Sanal also alleged that there is an “active sex scam” in the Malayalam film industry. “I am paying a price for speaking about these issues that the Malayalam film industry does not want to address,” Sanal said.

His last film Vazhakku is stuck and he blames his protagonist for it. “Tovino Thomas feels it will hurt his career. If he thought like that, then why did he make this film with me? I think superstars have their own satellites. These actors are ill-advised. The Malayalam film industry is like an underworld. It creates its own heroes,” he said.

Sanal is all alone in the US, with no family (he was divorced a few years ago and his children live with their mother) and no friends. “But I am fine. I enjoy my solitude. I like my own business,” he said.
