Fandom gone wrong? A woman from Thrissur, Kerala, faced severe lashing after her Facebook post denouncing Mohan Lal's latest, went viral on the internet. Within a week, her status updated received well over 4500 comments.

Nisha Menon Chembakassery reviewing Lal Ettan's movie wrote, "Shikar + Naran + spices... 5 gm each. Jeeps=10, Dialogues praising Murukan = sky is the limit. Goondas= 100." Fans of the veteran actor did not take well the post and within minutes, began posting demeaning and abusive comments, even issuing threats against her and her family. Following the unexpected reaction, Nisha made her post unavailable for the public for some time, later changing her decision saying others' comments should not affect her decision.

"All my posts were public posts and after the abusive comments began to be directed at my family, I restricted the visibility of the post. Later I changed the settings to 'public' again, why should I be affected by the comments?" she said. Nisha said she is not a fan of any actor, but of good films and these attacks won't stop her from speaking her mind.
