The rumour mill gets going

The resignation of the Chalachitra Academy chairman, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, has set the rumour mill agog once again.

The Chief Minister, A. K. Antony, had asked Mr. Gopalakrishnan not to press the resignation and a final decision is expected only after Mr. Gopalakrishnan's return from the Netherlands.

Still, names of many prospective candidates have started doing rounds in the industry circles.

Certain sections exude confidence that only a representative of the industry will be selected to head the academy and float the name of a prominent mainstream director whose Mohanlal film on regional politics was released of late.

Others maintain that the Government may select an `I' group leader who has also earned fame as a lyricist.

But the ball is in Mr.Antony's court and he is adept at keeping everyone guessing.
