It's been a couple of months since Malayalam actress Bhavana Menon was allegedly molested in Kerala. While the Kerala police has been investigating the matter, a new twist in the case unfolded, after renowned actor Dileep and director Nadirsha alleged to be blackmailed in connection with the case.
Reportedly, Dileep and Nadir had alleged that a co-inmate of Pulsar Suni, main accused of Bhavana Menon's molestation case, have blackmailed them through phone calls demanding Rs 1.5 crore.
The actor-director duo filed a complaint with police and stated that the caller, who has been identified as Vishnu, had threatened to involve their name in the case if the two failed to give him the money.
According to a report published in Mathrubhumi News, Nadir stated Vishnu had even claimed to have got an offer of Rs 2.5 crore to trap Dileep in the case.
“He said certain actors wish to drag Dileep’s name into the controversy. The list even had the names of few actresses. However, we have not believed his words and his intentions are not clear. It's high time the truth must come out,” Nadirsha old Mathrubhumi News.
Dileep-Nadir have reportedly handed over the audio clip of the entire conversation to the cops, who are investigating the mater further.
On the other hand, actor Dileep had reportedly claimed these threats to be an attempt to tarnish his image.
Notably, it was in February, when Bhavana had alleged that she was kidnapped and molested in her Audi car. It was reported that her driver Martin and his associate Sunil abducted her while she was returning back from the shoot in Ernakulam district in Kerala.
