The book has led to unwanted controversy for both Krishna and Saroja Devi. Supporters of S.M. Krishna thronged to the venue of the book release on Tuesday, alleging that it was an attempt to defame their leader who is planning for a return to active politics.
Saroja Devi is a renowned actress who has acted in several films in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Kannada. The 62-year old actress said that she was hurt by the references made by Vishwanath in his book.
