The Sandalwood spat is over, thanks primarily to Facebook and Twitter. Actress Ramya, on Thursday, confirmed that she had received her due payment —Rs10lakh — from producer A Ganesha through veteran actor and Kannada Artistes Association president Ambareesh, who played arbiter in the controversy that began with an all-out acting ban on Ramya that soon snowballed into a war between actors and producers in Sandalwood.
Meanwhile, the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC), too, lifted its one-year ban on the popular south Indian actress. The Queen Bee of Kannada cinema thanked the family of Ambareesh and other actors who “helped her find justice” .
She also expressed gratitude towards the exhibitors, besides the social networking sites, that helped her garner support from fans. “Thanks to Zuckerberg! Twitter and Facebook helped me highlight the issue,” the 30-year-old actor said.
Ramya has been active on the social networking sites the past week, seeking justice. The exhibitors, Ramya said, firmly stood by her in her fight for the repayment of a loan she made to Ganesha.
“They decided to boycott films produced by Ganesha and sought an apology. Thanks to all those who supported me. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have won this battle. It is very hard for a woman to stand alone and fight a Sandalwood battle. All I wanted is to get the money back,” she said.

It’s a curious theft and Sanjay Gupta is still scratching his head trying to make sense of it.
The entire publicity material of his upcoming film The Great Indian Butterfly has gone missing while in transit from his godown to the office of Eros, which is distributing the film. With the film slated to release in the first week of April, it’s a race against time for Sanjay to get all the material commissioned and prepared again.
“We’re certain it’s an inside job but we still haven’t figured out who did it,” Sanjay told Mumbai Mirror. “I wasn’t there that day because I was busy writing a script. My office has informed me that the loss will put us back by around Rs 10 lakh. The standees and vinyl designs are quite expensive and we barely have enough time to get the whole thing redone.”
But what possible use could his film’s posters be to someone else? “Even I can’t understand that,” says Sanjay. “But thankfully, at least the designs are ready so we won’t have to waste time redesigning the material.”
