Thilakan to don grease paint in 'Achen'

Thespian, Thilakan, who was ousted from the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) on the grounds of indiscipline, is all set to don the grease paint after a few months.

Speaking to us after appearing before the labour commissioner on Monday, Thilakan said director Ali Akbar has signed him in the lead role for his next film 'Achen'.

At the height of the feud, a well-wisher of the actor, Sreekumar Noornadu filed a petition before the state human rights commission that Thilakan was being victimised by various film bodies and his right to work is being curbed.

At the next hearing, superstar Mohanlal and AMMA president Innocent are expected to appear.
