In her complaint lodged at KFCC, Priya Bharathi stated, "Diganth had slept with the heroines of movie E Preethi, Tejashwini and Neena on one bed. He had even hidden alcohol bottles at my home in US."
Breaking his silence, actor Diganth said, "Director Priya Bharathi has misused the money of the movie E Preethi. Now the producer is asking her about the details of the financial expenditures. She does not have any expenses to show her misuse of the money. So she's unnecessarily targeting me. She's trying to trap me in this case of misusing the money."
He hit back at the director's claims of sharing same bed with the heroines and hiding alcohol bottles at her home in US. He said, "She's trying to create cock and bull story. I've neither slept with the heroines on the same bed nor hidden any alcohol bottles in her house."
Replying to a question of misusing her credit card, he asked, "Can any one give his or her credit card to others?" He further said, "Although she is 30 years old, her mind has not grown. She even does not have proper skills that a director should have."
However, the movie E Preethi has been in news for creating one or other issue since the beginning of its shooting. It has already changed cameraman for thrice and production managers for twice. Dignath said, "Priya doesn't know the ABCD of doing a movie. I've lot respect for the producer of the movie for which I would complete the shooting of the movie."
The row over the movie E Preethi has taken a new twist after actor Diganth hit back at director Priya Bharathi stating that she has misused the producer's money and tried to trap him in that case. Recently, the director had filed a case against the actor at Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC). She has alleged that he did not attend the shooting of E Preethi.
