Raja Mahendran (Kili Maharaja), the owner of MBC Networks has ordered not to bring in artistes Nirosha Virajini and Shihan Mihiranga to Sirasa TV, reports say.
'Sri Lanka Mirror' learns that a dispute has arisen between Raja Mahendran and the artistes after the latter had demanded the remainder of the sum they are to receive from the media network after appearing as judges of the reality TV programme - Sirasa Super Star.
The issue has come to light after Sanath Gunatillake had suggested to invite Nirosha to a discussion programme on his film 'Sinahawa Atharin' on Sirasa TV.
Nirosha is the main female playback singer in the film.
She is also an artiste who strongly supported Maithripala Sirisena during the Presidential election campaign. She also has close links with the Jathika Hela Urumaya.
