Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Film Development Corporation (OFDC) Thursday hold a meeting headed by Chairman of OFDC Kuna Tripathy, to bring a solution to the current dispute between Manoj Mishra and Film Producers who have banned the actor for two years.

The meeting was attended by actor Arindam Roy, Film Artist Association secretary Sritam Das, Producer Tutu Nayak and other persons from the Odia film fraternity.

Though the meeting was about Manoj Mishra and his ban, he himself was absent from the meeting.

“Manoj Mishra is our brother. I do not want this dispute to linger any longer and affect him adversely. I spoke with the producers in the meeting and they told me that they do not harbour any ill feelings against him. They also assured me that the ban will be lifted the day he comes for a dialogue,” Tripathy said.

After the meeting Sritam Das said, “Everybody present in the meeting agreed to lift the ban on him. Which is a positive sign. I would like to request Manoj Mishra to come forward and have a dialogue with them.”

Ollywood industry since last week is fighting an inner battle after actor and producer Manoj Mishra being banned by the producers and The Utkal Cine Chambers of Commerce from the Odia film industry for two years over the allegation that his supporter attempted to stop actor Arindam Roy’s new movie RAM.
