Meanwhile director Lal came in defence of his son saying the whole thing is made-up. “When finalizing cast for Honey Bee 2, he(Jean) was looking out for a modern female face and chanced upon this actress who worked as TV anchor. Everything went very well  until the day of her shoot came. On that day, actor Sreenivasan did not show up owing to illness and shoot was postponed.”

“She got irritated with the delay,” Lal continued “Next day while shooting proceeded, there was trouble with light settings and the session was cut short to be put off next day. The actress got worked up and Jean who too was weary decided to drop her as her performance too was not satisfactory.”

According to Lal this exclusion is now being avenged as obscene talk and cheating.

The movie was released in March , why didn’t she come out with a complaint, if she was genuinely aggrieved, Lal asks.
