Kalabhavan Mani passed away last month and still he is news due to various reasons. There were many rumors regarding his death for past few weeks and it is not yet reached to a conclusion. Now another controversy also rose up and it related to the infamous fainting episode of Kalabhavan Mani when he not got the state award for best actor for the performance of him in the Vinayan directorial film named Vasanthiyum Lakshmiyum Pinne Njanum.
But one his friend and script writer Haridas Karivelloor says that there no fainting from the side of Kalabhavan Mani and it was a staged incident to hide some other events that happened inside. He says that Kalabhavan Mani was not such a feeble person mentally or physically to faint if he was denied an award by a jury.
Haridas Karivelloor says that at that time one of the Jury Members had called Kalabhavan Mani and said to him that he was in the final round of the best actor award with another actor and there is chance for him to win the award. Later on the day of declaration, that jury member again called him and said that he was chosen as the best actor. So there were congratulations all around and he had begun to share the news with the ones who came there to greet him. But then another call came from that jury member and he said that at the last moment there was an intervention came from the cultural Minister and the award went to another actor. Mani was so angry and he called Cultural Minister and abused him using bad language. He was that much angry.
There comes another problem. He felt that there was chance for the spreading of this abusing episode through media and as per the advice of his lawyer, he had staged a fainting drama and admitted in a Private Hospital to divert the attention of the audience. Haridas Karivelloor says that Mani later ridiculed by many over this fainting episode. Now after his death also some mentioned that incident. And as a friend who knows what really happened, he does not want to hide the truth and don’t want to see Mani in a bad light over this incident. That is why he is revealing it now.
