The actress seemed shocked by this incident and she is claiming innocence. Amoolya says this is a digitally morphed image and has no authenticity. She justifies her stand saying, “This is a conspiracy against me. People, who are jealous of my success at this young age, are doing this. It must be the creation of the people from the film industry. I will take legal stand against them all."
The director Ratnaja also challenged that image saying it was modified digitally. His last film starring Amoolya, was a hit. He said, “Someone tried to blackmail me two weeks back claiming to possess such an image. But, I ignored it as I knew that I have never done something like this. Amoolya became a popular actress just after the release of her debut film Cheluvina Chittaara by S Narayan. Thereafter, she appeared in several hit films like Prakash Raj"s Naanu, Nanna Kanasu and Premism.
However, the actress is not having a good time on the personal front since last year, when she lost her father. Later, she had to complain against a stalker and crazy fans irked her by painting her house with cheap graffiti. Amoolya ,has probably broken down in the face of such incidents, as she said, “Sometimes, I think of leaving this industry."
The problem does not end here as the blackmailer has claimed to have a video of her and the director getting intimate. Last November, Ratnaja was engaged to be married to the sister-in-law of a well-known film editor. But the engagement was broken off, which has added spice to the speculation.
