What is your complaint?
Sashilal Nair (director) used a double to shoot some scenes I wouldn't do. I find them very objectionable and he refuses to remove them.

What did you object to?
See, I come from a decent family. How would I ever sit and have dinner with my father if a film like this releases?

But did you know about these scenes earlier?
I'd told him right in the beginning that the story seems good, except for certain shots.

You also lent him your hairdresser.
It was in good faith. He'd assured me he won't use the shots without my consent.

But why didn't you protest earlier?
I wanted to see the scenes earlier but he insisted that I should see them only later in the perspective of the film.

When did you finally see them?
My mother accompanied me to see the film with him only after it was complete.

Did you object then?
Yes, of course. It's a sensitive film, but these scenes look like soft porn. I told him that such scenes were not required, but he said we'll discuss it later.

Then what happened?
A few weeks after I objected, Nair told me he cannot remove the shots.

You've gone to the Cine Artistes Association.
Yes. He's now saying he'd remove them if if I bore fifty per cent of the shooting cost. Can you believe that. This, when I did the film free of cost.

What now?
I've sent him a notice and he has apparently agreed to reshoot my portions with a newcomer.
