She reportedly made the attempt on Saturday night (14 June), immediately after some ugly gossip about her began circulating that the clips showing her performing a special pooja with a swamiji without any clothes, have hit the internet. It was also said that she was shown in an intimate position with swamiji in an MMS.
When she heard the news that she was dragged into a scandal involving a well-known swamiji, she was disturbed a lot, sources said. The suicide attempt was foiled by her family members.
The entire story began when a self-proclaimed 'swamiji' was arrested in Kerala. It was said that a number of leading heroines used to visit him for some special semi-nude poojas that he performed. In the said list, Kavya Madhavan's name was also reportedly found.
However, online circulation of Kavya Madhavan's blue film is still unconfirmed. Many claim that they have seen it, others state that there is no such thing. Perhaps mischief-makers may be circulating the rumours for their own interest!
