    He has no back bone. He vanished from 'Mega Star' just like that.

    Bakamoona Thursday, 14 October 2010 12:23 PM

    Is this a gimmick to get more popular or, will he also be asked to say 'sorry'.

    geo Thursday, 14 October 2010 12:23 PM

    he is a good guy, most ppl know that. just another revange by 'them'

    citizen Thursday, 14 October 2010 12:25 PM

    did someone call the fashion police on him?

    Chandi Thursday, 14 October 2010 12:26 PM

    malkanthi, you probably didn't get what I meant. He's a person who stood up for women's rights. Not for what u r referring to. He's not like others who only talk and no action.

    Nandimithra Thursday, 14 October 2010 01:09 PM

    He did not like a judge

    Lalith Friday, 15 October 2010 03:08 AM

    He also another victim of Ranil. Because those who join in hands with Ranil has to face the music. First SF. Now Ranjan. But I am sure all Sri Lankans are with Ranjan.

    Yuri Thursday, 14 October 2010 01:28 PM

    knight Rider Friday, 15 October 2010 04:02 AM

    looks like the teacher wants some attention to get into politics... somebody is feeling insecure and wants a lot of people in jail.

    ND Friday, 15 October 2010 11:21 AM

    Me too. People seem to have lost all objectivity in their partisan and flawed thinking, day dreams, illogic and stupidity.

    Dr Ransith Gunawarde Friday, 15 October 2010 04:40 AM

    As SF said, prisons will be full up soon...MR is going nuts, is it his turning point?

    bernard Thursday, 14 October 2010 03:50 PM

    Same LAW should be applied to fraudsters in the Government.

    WOW.....who's da women Anarkali ?

    Wasantha Friday, 15 October 2010 05:33 AM

    This case seems to be a fabricated one. Very easily this type of trap could be used against political opponent. Our history has lot of similar cases and the most pathetic one is, filing case after case against SF.

    robinson Thursday, 14 October 2010 10:58 AM

    Yes, you are right. More would be arrested when time to come citing silly and trivial reasons.

    Who is this woman who gave money trying to get married to this guy?

    Mohamed Hussein Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:24 PM

    This is a funny country. Everytime a UNP er does anything wrong like stealing, robbing,misappropriation and anything like that he is said to be innocent and the government is said to be victimising them ! That means all the Opposition supporters donot make any crime and they should not be punished !
    I think it is a phobia affecting opposition people.

    T.M. Shehan Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:03 AM

    At this rate the whole opposition will be in Welikada very soon

    Sandaru Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:05 AM

    Duminda is lucky. take advice from him. sure he will help you

    Cynthia Pietersz Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:06 AM

    Ranjan, Run, Run, and cross over, everything is going to be fine.


    Watchman Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:11 AM

    Given the dowry earlier to get married...!!1 What a foolish women?

    monarawila nilame Friday, 15 October 2010 06:07 AM

    this gentleman helped our poor house maids in the middle east from the bottom of his heart.

    Chandi Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:12 AM

    Wow, he's very concerned about women's affairs. Ranjan & SF should form a new party inside Welikade. What shall we call it? "Welikada Freedom Front".

    citizen1 Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:08 PM

    Yes, apparently it is unfashionable to be in the opposition!

    Dillon Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:15 AM

    This is pathetic. He is the only genuine actor left in Sri Lanka who can compete with the Hollywood and Bollywood actors.

    paul Friday, 15 October 2010 06:17 AM

    what a sad story.. this is the real con mafia operating

    unl Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:16 AM

    yes bcox all Crooks are in the opposition. but they act like saints.

    Minister Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:16 AM

    Oh don't worry for getting arrested just once, Look at Vaico, He must have been arrested for the 101th time today.

    Bluff Bluff Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:19 AM

    Just follow the advice of Cynthia. When you join to strengthen the arm, all those cases will be wiped off and you will even be a minister soon.

    malkanthi Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:20 AM

    Oh poor chandi dont know much about anything happening around. Which man is not interested in women's affairs?? may be 1% !

    LAKPRIYA Friday, 15 October 2010 06:23 AM

    no, not all sri lankans. just because he is an actor, he is nor beyond the law

    Ananda Premalal Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:21 AM

    Definitely this guy will ask for a T.V , Mobile phone and a Secured Room with attached Bath Room.

    Harshani Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:21 AM

    Half of the oppistion for cross over and the rest is for Jail! Sooner there won't be an opposition in sri lanka!

    nn.c.wijeratne Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:36 PM


    They call it the RULE OF LAW in Sri Lanka!

    LAKPRIYA Friday, 15 October 2010 06:25 AM

    he may be a good guy in the films. But definitely not in the real life

    LAKPRIYA Friday, 15 October 2010 06:28 AM

    We had stealing actresses. Now we have stealing actors. Nice acting. Good for your political future. Come out and cry " I was victimized".

    sltk2004 Thursday, 14 October 2010 11:29 AM

    That is the normal way. If a man is not interested in women - then it is strange
