The complaint was registered on November 3, 2013 and on the same evening, Menon issued a statement saying that she decided to drop the case.

The ‘Prithvi’ actress added, “You need to forgive them out of large-heartedness, because it wouldn’t have been easy for man in his 70s to apologise publicly like he did.” Shweta was in the news in 2012 when she delivered her daughter Sabaina, which was filmed on camera as part of the movie ‘Kalimannu’.
