Malayalam film actress Manju Warrier has now lodged a complaint against filmmaker VA Shrikumar Menon. The complaint is lodged with Kerala DGP Loknath Behera. “I was subjected to a social media cyber attack after the release of Odiyan. Although I have overcome this, Menon is again creating trouble for me. I am afraid that he might harm me,” Manju’s complaint was quoted.
According to reports, Manju had visited the DGP’s office in Thiruvananthapuram directly and handed over her handwritten complaint. In her complaint, Manju also stated that letter pads in the name of ‘Manju Warrier Foundation’ and blank cheques she had signed were being misused by Shrikumar Menon, allegedly to siphon off from her savings. The actor also reportedly submitted digital evidence to support her complaint.
Manju has worked Menon and his advertising agency Push Integrated Communications. He had directed her in several advertising campaigns for Kalyan Jewellers, and they had worked together in the movie ‘Odiyan’. According to the complaint, Push Integrated Communications was also overseeing the activities of her foundation.
Meanwhile, Odiyan released in December 2018 and when it did not receive good reviews, Shrikumar blamed it all on Manju. Shri also alleged that Manju’s husband Dileep had conspired to tank Odiyan at the box office.
