Shwetha Menon was charged with insulting the Indian flag at a fashion show on 5 January 2004. The show was organized by NIFD at a resort, where Menon walked the ramp allegedly with the tricolour wrapped around her body.
In 2011 she had filed a case against Kunnath Pharmaceuticals’ managing director K.C. Abraham for misusing stills from her film Kayam for promoting their Ayurvedic aphrodisiac Musli Power Extra. The Ernakulam central police arrested Abraham.
Shwetha allowed her delivery to be recorded for Blessy’s film Kalimannu. The act was condemned for commercializing the most private affair of a woman by the Kerala Film Exhibitors.
On 4 November 2013, she filed a case against N. Peethambara Kurup from the Indian national congress in a groping incident. Shweta later dropped her complaint against Kurup, saying the 71-year-old leader tendered a “personal apology” to her hours after she lodged the FIR against him.
