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.
In the film industry, the term 'casting couch" is quite well known and such incidents often come up to the surface. The truth about these stories have never come out and people tend to forget them after some time. Recently, the teenage Kannada actress has been trapped in a very awkward situation. An image of her showing smooching ace director Ratnaja is creating gossips around the Kannada film industry. The image got circulated among the media and everybody has access to it now.
