Kamal, the veteran director severely thrashed actress Meera Jasmine, through his special column Ente Veyil Njarambile Pachayum Pookkalum, in Madhyamam magazine. Kamal states that Meera herself is completely responsible for the downfall in her career.
According to Kamal, Meera Jasmine was extremely rude to the crew members on his sets. During the filming of the Dileep starrer Gramaphone, Meera was disrespectful and insulting to the senior technicians, including the National Award winning costume designer SB Satheesh.
The actress even went on to the extent of tearing off the costumes made for her, in front of Satheesh. The incident was highly shocking for the whole team. When Kamal scolded her for her behaviour, Meera chose to ignore him. The team decided to tolerate her, only because of her acting talent.
Later, she apologized to SB Satheesh and others for her behaviour; but made it clear that she can't be friendly with everyone. But later Meera behaved normally and even bagged the lead role of his next movie Swapnakoodu. But slowly she started showing her real face.
The actress didn't turn up for shooting at the correct time and made the whole crew wait for hours. Meera troubled the director even during the dubbing sessions; by leaving the studio in the middle. Kamal finally lashed out and criticized her for being so immature.
Meera later started showing her tantrums even to the veteran actors and managed to create issues in the sets of Mohanlal starrer Innathe Chinthavishayam and Mammootty's Ore Kadal. Once, Jagathy Sreekumar had publicly stated that he hates to work with the actress.
