A news that created quite a buzz in the film industry was the mud slinging episode between director Rosshan Andrrews and Producer Alwin Antony. Both of them accused each other of roughing up and had lodged complaints with the police claiming assault. The truth as circulated in the media was that Rosshan Andrrews and the producer's son Alwin John were not on good terms after the latter was reprimanded for allegedly misbehaving with a lady associate director and also for his indulgence in drugs. The producers Association had banned its members from funding Rosshan Andrrews' films. Now, we hear that the superstars-Mohanlal and Mammootty had requested the Producers Association to go soft on Rosshan.
