Malayalam film actress Manju Warrier has filed a complaint to Kerala Police Chief Loknath Behera against director Sreekumar Menon.
Menon had directed Manju's movie Odiyan.
In her complaint filed on Monday, Manju alleged that Menon has been threatening and defaming her. She also handed over digital evidence to buttress her claims.
"After the release of Odiyan, I have been receiving defamatory messages on social media. I have been subjected to cyber attacks. I tried to ignore them, but Menon has been troubling me. Menon and his friend Mathew Samuel have been posting defamatory statements against me. I am afraid that he may harm me," Manju Warrier wrote in her complaint.
She also alleged that Sreekumar Menon has been misusing the letterhead of her foundation - Manju Warrier Foundation - and blank cheques signed by her.
Manju Warrier played the lead in Odiyan which starred Mohanlal opposite to her and the film bombed at box office.
Manju was last seen in Dhanush-starrer Asuran which marked her debut in Tamil industry.
