Kochi (Indiana): More production houses in the Malayalam movie industry are adopting codes of conduct and establishing an internal complaints commission (ICC) in production units to address sexual harassment and other claims.After director Senna Hegdes 1744 set an example by forming an ICC on film sets, the production team of Ntikkakkakkoru Premandarnnu also constructed an ICC with a systematic structural design, which may eventually serve as a reference point to other production houses.The crew members were also given a code of conduct.The shooting of the film, directed by debutant Adhil Maimoonath Asharaf and starring Bhavana and Sharaf U Dheen, took place at Kodungalloor in 2013.

If the complainant is unsatisfied, the matter would be turned over to judicial bodies.The ICC's sexual harassment policy specifies that the cast and crew must treat one another with dignity.According to Sangeetha Janachandran, crew members can either directly contact the committee or post their questions by email.The establishment of ICCs will result in a major transformation in the film industry.
