Slanderous gossips and continuous negative reports have become the cause for much defame for Meera Jasmine in Tamil and Telugu filmdoms, where the actress gets high salaries than her mother language movies.
Nowadays, the Malayalam actress is unable to find producers in Tamil and Telugu language films, and due to this she is willing to stoop down to even acting with the second rung heroes in those languages. In Tamil, Bharath is her present hero and in Telugu, it is Srikanth.
Very recently, she approached S.J.Surya, and requested him to give her the role of the second heroine in his yet to be launched project Puli with 'power star' Pawan Kalyan. After her repeated requests, the director has assured her a place in Puli but has not yet confirmed whether it will be the heroine's role or just a cameo.
Many industry people view her as an opportunist who is mainly responsible for rivalry between her co-stars. She was earlier blamed for causing friction between Balakrishna and Ravi Teja.
After having realized her fading popularity each passing day, she has decided to strengthen her hold in Malayalam films, this primarily being the reason behind her reunion with her disputed mentor Lohitdass.
