Actor Allu Arjun, who received flak from his fans following an online video in which he is seen skipping a drunk-and-drive test and arguing with policemen, says he took the test and was let go. The 25-second video in which Arjun is seen arguing with the police and then leaving, was leaked online late Monday evening. The Stylish Star has denied the charges and condemned the media for negative publicity.
The video became a web sensation because it released few days after Allu Arjun featured in a short film called I Am That Change, about being responsible citizens of the country. The short film released on Independence Day on August 15. Allu Arjun took to his Facebook account to clear the air this morning.
Allu Arjun wrote, "Regarding the police stopping my car video, this is what happened that night. The police did ask me to blow into the breath analyzer, but I said I was a little uncomfortable with all the cameras at me. Once they were taken away, I did take the test and was let go by the police."
The Race Gurram actor continued, "And I don't think Hyderabad police will leave anyone, caught drunk driving without proper action. The video is being circulated without this part. So stop this negative propaganda." He added, "Even if I have a few drinks I always walk back or ask someone to drop me off or take a taxi or an auto. It's very disrespectful to see one of the media groups to leak the video and be edited in such a wrong pattern."
