Meera is performing well in Kannada and Telugu with good offers in hand, but the ban in Malayalam came at a time when she was getting exciting offers and the industry sees it as a setback to her career. Sources say that Meera has no one but herself to blame for all the things that went wrong. She was blacklisted from Malayalam for refusing to do AMMA's Twenty:20 even when AMMA made it clear that all actors should compulsorily participate in it.
While it is not clear what went wrong between Shankar and Meera, some suggest that Meera failed to report for shooting on the dates she had given for the film. The crew looked for other options after waiting for a few days, which included replacing Meera with a suitable actress. But sources close to Meera say that the actress withdrew from the film due to some creative differences between her and the film's young hero Nanda.
Although Meera still has some projects in Tamil like Aadi Narayana and Mariyadhai, it needs to be seen what all these black marks can do to her career in the South.
