Manju Warrier, also the first wife of superstar Dileep, submitted a complaint with Kerala Police chief Loknath Behra, alleging that Sreekumar Menon was trying to defame her and that she feared for her life. The police arrested Sreekumar Menon and later freed on bail by police after questioning in the complaint against him filed by Manju Warrier. His arrest was recorded after interrogating him at Thrissur police club on Thursday.
Sreekumar Menon said that what he did with good intentions was interpreted wrongly. On his Facebook, he has written, “The loss I suffered across all fronts because I was your friend and helped you and besides that, all the success you enjoyed with my help, I feel you have forgotten all that in a jiffy.” On the professional front, he has directed Warrier in Mohanlal starrer Odiyan as well as in several advertisements films.
