Usthad Hotel Actress and popular Kappa TV VJ, Meghna Nair who was part of Honey Bee 2 movie has filed a police complaint against its director, Jean Paul Lal @ Lal Jr and production company, Lal Media for using a body double of Meghna for a scene without her permission.
Meghna in an exclusive conversation with The Kochi Post and has clarified that the case has been filed for using a body double in the movie and not for passing any lewd remarks, contrary to media reports. She added, “My only concern is that despite my objection, they have used a body double of mine for a scene. I am against objectifying women and had my reservations about a particular scene where my exposed back and stomach is shown. When I refused to do that, they asked me to leave the set and told me that they would call me for another scene which was to be later shot. They never called me and when the movie was released with a different scene from what I was told, I realised they have used a body double.”
Sources close to The Kochi Post has confirmed that the complaint has been leaked to media by Lal Jr. and Lal Media to downplay the entire issue of using a body double and making it an ingenuine case of passing lewd comments, the moment the FIR was registered as they knew it would be on news very soon.
