Eminent Supreme Court Lawyers Renjith Marar and Lakshmi Renjith Marar will be representing Meghna Nair in the case of using a body double of the actor without her permission in the movie, Honey Bee 2, against its Director, Jean Paul Lal @ Lal Jr and production company, Lal Media. The Kochi Post first reported the clarifying statement of Meghna, that the case has been filed for using a body double and not for passing any lewd remarks; contrary to several media reports.
On July 25th, the day the FIR was registered, Actor Lal appeared in several news channels justifying his son’s act. But the justification that looked entirely scripted with varied modulation in voice, dismissing certain incidents, acting ignorance in some other and showing an under current of film feudalism and patriarchy, didn’t go down well with the public. It was understood as an attempt to intimidate the victim.
Advocate Lakshmi strongly felt an injustice has been done to Meghna; and that is one of the primary reason for Renjith Marar’s grandiose entry into this case.
