Leading Tamil actress Sneha has alleged that a local channel has used her photos and name to promote a chat show, which is in no way connected to her.
In her press statement regarding this, the actress told that for reasons best known to a Tamil satellite television channel, her name and photographs have been used for a chat show with which she had absolutely nothing to do at all.
"The motive seems mischievously sinister and ridiculous..." Sneha says.
Trouble arose on Saturday when Raj TV distributed pamphlets about a forthcoming show entitled "Soodana Sneha" to reporters.
An image of the actress sans a caption or other indications of her participation has set tongues wagging that she might be turning to television as well.
She said, "The channel has no business to do this to me. It is surely the handiwork of a few unwanted elements who want to tarnish my name simply because I opted out of projects for personal reasons..."
The actress had recently walked out of ace director K.S. Ravi Kumar's forthcoming venture Jaggubhai starring actor-politician Sarath Kumar.
