Uthara Unni was in news recently. She was said to be a part of Team Solar. The actress has now commented that she has become more famous through the solar scam issue. "I was never popular to this extent for my films. Though for a different reason, I am happy that people have come to know about me," says the actress in an interview.
Uthara Unni had stated that she was the brand ambassador for the Team Solar in her Facebook page. This led for an enquiry against the actress. Later, it was even rumoured that Uthara Unni has travelled along with the solar scam accused Saritha S Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan twice. It was said that she has accepted money from them. Uthara Unni said that she was involved in a photoshoot for the Team Solar.
"The controversy has increased the confidence level of my daughter," says her mother Urmila Unni, who is also a popular dancer. Uthara is currently shooting for her film Edavapathi, directed by Lenin Rajendran. She is more popular as a model rather than an actress.
