Talking to the Chitraloka.com, Kiran had said that Pooja was his family friend and he helped her to boost her career opportunities when her career graph started going down after the movie Mungaru Male. He helped her to release some of her movies overseas. He even helped her sisters Radhika and Suhasi to get movies and BBM seat respectively.
Kiran added that he had also given her a few lakhs of rupees along with his own mobile and Innova car. But the actress recently made a car accident and the case was registered in his name because the car was owned by Kiran. When he asked her about the accident, the actress abused him with foul language, which made him very upset.
Pooja Gandhi, who was in Tirupathi with her family, responded to Kiran's remarks and said that he was making false charges against her. "The car belongs to my father's business enterprise. I was using the car. Dr. Kiran is making false accusations on me. I don"t know what is in his mind. I don"t have any control on his baseless utterances," the Chitraloka.com quotes her as saying.
