Ranga’s Christmas teledrama abandoned due to SLRC DG’s negligence!

Published

on

The filming of a Christmas-themed teledrama, which was to be created by award-winning veteran television programme producer Ranga Bandaranayake, had been abandoned due to the delay in Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC) Director General Ajantha Senaviratne’s giving approval.

SLRC sources said the director general has deliberately neglected to approve the relevant file.

This is said to be the first time in the history of the SLRC that filming of a teledrama has been abandoned due to the director general’s failure to approve a file. Hence, SLRC employees said Ajantha Seneviratne has also made history as the first SLRC director-general to not approve a drama owing to his negligence.

However, there has been an allegation that Mr. Seneviratne has been given instructions to abandon the teledrama by a higher-up at the SLRC connected to the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).

Meanwhile, it was reported that during a meeting held on Christmas themed programmes, all the proposed programmes have been stopped and an order has been made that only the programmes created according to the wishes of Mr. Seneviratne should be produced.

It was reported that he has already started working with an external agency in this regard.

However, SLRC workers believe that the filming of the teledrama has been stopped in order to buy a teledrama from another party.

They said that this is a money making job.

Meanwhile, the SLRC administration has been accused of financial irregularities during the Australian cricket team’s visit to Sri Lanka and the FIFA World Cup tournament.
