There was a biggest reason for Thushar Ranganath to be shocked and that is the news about Yamuna's flesh trade broke out on TV just a day before the release of his second directorial venture Kanteerava in which she has played a pivotal role. Talking about the news, he said, “I am shocked."
Immediately after hearing the news, several of Thushar's colleagues and friends called him up to confirm Yamuna's involvement in sex trade, but he dismissed the reports. According to him, she was a very professional actress on the sets. He said, “None of us can believe that she was taken by the police."
However, Yamuna was amongst a big group of such racketeers caught red handed at a ITC Royal Gardenia Hotel in Bangalore. Many of her colleagues in the small and big screens claim that she is a very simple person and was hardly involved in any controversies in her career. They say that it is shocking news for them.
Popular actress Yamuna has starred in many films and TV serials and she has friends in both the industries. Several of her colleagues were shocked to hear the news about her prostitution racket. Director Thushar Ranganath, who has directed her in his latest Kannada movie Kanteerava, was the first among the shocked colleagues of hers.
