Popular choreographer, actor and Bigg Boss contestant Gayathri Raghuram has issued a statement on the drunken driving controversy. Reports in popular media houses suggested that the actress was booked under drunken driving case but she has a different story. According to Gayathri, she didn’t have the license with her so the police officers came to her home to check the documents. The actress says that a reporter who was caught for driving under the influence of alcohol spread the wrong news in the media.

"I don’t how I make it to the news headline all the time. I’m sick and tired of allegations. Anyways I’m not keeping well the last couple of days. Please stop disturbing me and my privacy. Please consult with me before spreading any news about me. To hide something else I’m the news. Pen and paper can be strong. But not stronger than my soul and life. Continue writing and I continue to live stronger. The one who created this fake news he was press reporter who was caught drunk and driving. I finished my shoot and was dropping my co-star at home. I was stopped for normal checking. No such incident fighting with a cop ball press reporter ended up writing whatever came in mind.

"I did not have license other documents with me and it was in my different handbag. Traffic police came with me to check the documents. I, in fact, appreciated their work there was no quarrel he spoke about my father and he was in fact fan of me we took a selfie. I drove the car. If I was drunk they wouldn’t have let me drive my car again. Stop cooking stories. There was no speeding or anything full of lies. Unfortunate not to know the reporter’s name who was caught. Me and cops had a brief conversation I was there only for 10 mins.I’m not worried about being in the news and I don’t care. It’s just the news reporter who spreading this was caught for drunk and driving. But everyone let him go but I’m targeted. Very nice place to live with no privacy. Anyways there are a lot of other important things in life take care. God bless all”, said Gayathri in her statement.
