The producer was soon surrounded by the media and he was showered with questions about the incident. Reacting to the issue, he said, “Every family has a skeleton in the cupboard. The media is unnecessarily hyping the news just because Darshan is a celebrity."
“I know Darshan and Vijayalakshmi very well. I am here to console the family. They have resolved the issue and now everything is fine, Sa Ra Govindu concludes.
Meanwhile, Darshan, who has been arrested under the charges of threatening to kill his wife, has admitted before the Vijayanagar Police that he tried to attack his wife Vijayalakshmi in drunken state of mind. But the Kannada actor denied the charges of threatening to kill her with a revolver.
Producer Sa Ra Govindu has come to the rescue of Challenging Star Darshan, who is under fire from the media for threatening to kill his wife Vijayalakshmi. The filmmaker, who has worked with the actor in Bhagavan, visited the Vijayanagar police station to meet the Challenging Star and later requested the media not to blow the issue out of proportion.
