She proceeded, “When I can’t, he all of a sudden turned the vehicle to a contrary heading and took me to his region and began mishandling me. He got down from the vehicle, opened the entryway and actually hauled me out… when I lost my temper and began requesting help he undermined me and called different young men.”
“Since I was getting late for my shooting and my unit was waiting for me I had to rush from the incident spot. Later, I spoke to my dad and whatever legal action is needed I shall pursue,” she added.
The actor went on to say that the whole incident happened in front of Devdas Restaurant (EM Bypass) UttarPanchana Gram (VIP Bazar) on Wednesday morning between 8.15-8.45.
