My photos have been misused for chat show: actress SnehaSeptember 14th, 2008 - 5:50 pm ICT by IANS
Chennai, Sep 14 (IANS) Tamil actress Sneha has alleged that a regional channel has used her photos and name to promote a chat show, which is in no way connected to her.”For reasons best known to a Tamil satellite television channel, my name and photographs have been used for a chat show with which I have absolutely nothing to do at all. The motive seems mischievously sinister,” Sneha told IANS.
Trouble arose Saturday when Raj TV distributed pamphlets about a forthcoming show entitled “Soodana Sneha” to reporters.
An image of the actress sans a caption or other indications of her participation set tongues wagging that she might be turning to television as well.
The Mumbai-born actress of Telugu origins expressed shock.
“The channel had no business to do this to me. It is surely the handiwork of a few disgruntled elements who want to tarnish my name simply because I opted out of projects for personal reasons,” said Sneha, who has acted in films like “Vasool Raja MBBS” and “April Madhathil”.
The actress had recently walked out of ace director K.S. Ravi Kumar’s forthcoming venture “Jaggubhai” starring actor-politician Sarath Kumar.
The female lead slated to be played by her was later offered to Hindi actress Tabu.
Sneha has starred opposite top south Indian stars like Kamal Haasan, Vijay, Ajith Kumar, Surya and Vikram. She also did a cameo in the recent Rajnikant-starrer “Kuselan”.
