Malayalam actor Shane Nigam shot to fame for his role in Kumbalangi Nights and Ishq. The actor has been in news ever since Shane posted a video alleging Joby George, producer of Veyil, issued death threats to him for getting a haircut. But the issue turned out to be worse after he sported a new haircut as a 'protest’. As per the latest updates, Shane Nigam has been banned by the Kerala Film Producers’ Association (KFPA) and also his three films (Veyil, Qurbani, Ullasam) have also been stopped. National Award-winning cinematographer Rajeev Ravi has come in support of Shane Nigam and stated that he has the right to express his opinion. Shane Nigam’s New ‘Haircut’ Leave Fans Stunned, Is This New Look His Protest Against Veyil Team?
In an interview to The News Minute, Rajeev Ravi was quoted as saying, “They should consider his age. He is only 22 and such a talented actor. You can’t just put an end to someone’s career like that. But I am also concerned about the directors, who would have spent such a lot of time creating what they did. Their work has been suddenly stopped. The issue should be discussed among all of them and solved.” He also said, “It is such a silly issue that is blown out of proportion. Such issues happen in all film sets, we have all dealt with it.”
Rajeev Ravi told IE Malayalam, “There is no need to compare him with stars like Mohanlal and Mammootty rather he should be made aware about things. The issue can be easily resolved if one calls him and discuss the matter with him. I have my complete hope in him. Those who have banned him will make movies with him in the future.” Shane Nigam's Upcoming Films Veyil and Qurbaani Scrapped as the Actor Gets Banned by Kerala Film Producers' Association.
