Actress Samyuktha Hegde of Jayam Ravi starrer Comali fame and two friends had gone to a park next to the Agara Lake in HSR Layout in Bengaluru on Friday evening to exercise and practice with their hula hoops.
But the outing soon turned into a nightmare, and the actor has alleged that she was heckled by a group of people led by AICC member Kavitha Reddy for wearing a sports bra in a public place.
Posting a video of the incident, she tweeted, “The future of our country reflects on what we do today. We were abused and ridiculed by Kavitha Reddy at Agara Lake @BlrCityPolice @CPBlr There are witnesses and more video evidence I request you to look into this #thisisWRONG.”
Stating that the woman began criticizing her for her clothes – a sports bra and workout pants, she added: “I was soon surrounded by a few men, who started threatening me by saying that they would get her name linked in the drug scandal in Sandalwood.”
“I was practising the hoola hoops and my other friends were doing their workout when an elderly lady walked upto us and began abusing us in the choicest of language. ‘ “Are you cabaret dancers? What sort of clothes are you wearing? A@&&&@s! If you wear such clothes and something happens to you the next time, don’t come crying to anyone,” ‘ she told us and continued hurling abuses.
Soon after, about ten boys joined her,” shared a visibly shaken Samyuktha. Soon the boys began threatening her that they’d get her name fixed in the ongoing drug scandal.
In a detailed video shared by the Samyuktha Hegde on Instagram, the police can be seen present at the location. The woman can be heard saying that she wants to file a case against the actress.
The elderly woman, on camera, blames the Kannad actor for ‘stripping in public’. Following this, Samyuktha Hegde begins to walk out as the woman and the group of men follow her along with the police while saying, “We are not letting you go, we will not leave you. You have to come to the police station.”
