Meera Jasmine, the controversy queen of Malayalam cinema, is in trouble yet again. Budding director Manoj Alunkal, who directed Meera in his debut movie Ithinumappuram, has lodged a complaint against the actress to the movie associations.
Manoj alleges that Meera Jasmine cheated him and his team by quitting the movie midway. According to the director, he approached her with the project as the script demanded a talented actress. Meera was also impressed with the script.

She signed the project for a remuneration of 15 Lakhs. But the actress abruptly left the sets several times during the filming, sometimes even without informing the crew. The crew was forced to suspend the shoot many times, due to Meera's 'bad mood'.
Later, the actress asked the team to postpone the shoot due to her wedding and promised to resume the filming after the break. The crew constructed the sets in Alappuzha upon her promise; but Meera never came for the shoot.
She also demanded additional 10 Lakhs to resume the shoot. The team decided to pay her; and put forward a condition, that she has to attend the promotional events. But Meera didn't turn up for the promotional events and interviews.
Manoj points out that most of the directors have had several bad experiences from Meera; but most of them chose to ignore the issues. Recently, veteran director Kamal has also lashed out against Meera through his column in a popular magazine.
