Manju Warrier may not be known to the Telugu audience, but she is a household name in Kerala. The senior artist is allegedly missing. There is a suspicion that she has been kidnapped.
The speculation has gained traction with Mollywood filmmaker Sanal Kumar making an open social media post about why he suspects Manju has been detained by her enemies (whoever they are). The director, who knows Manju personally and professionally, wrote that there has been no response from Manju even though it has been four days since he had made a social media post alleging that her life was in danger. If her life was not in danger, she would have contacted him to say that she was doing fine. But she hasn't contacted him at all.
He didn't name any suspects. All that the director said is that the actress is facing a threat from some vested interests.
The director has penned a mail to a commission that is concerned with women's safety and security. He lamented that the media has not been highlighting the issue.
