Over the years, she has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry and this has made her a force to be reckoned with. Now, she is in the limelight for a surprising reason. As it so happens, during a recent interview with Behindwoods, she revealed that she got into trouble with the cops.
Recalling the incident, the Mersal beauty said that when she was in the 11th standard, she was stopped by the cops for riding a bike without a license.
"Dad got me a Scooty during my 11th grade in school, and I was told to drive only inside the streets of Pallavaram, as I did not have a driving license. But, one day, without anyone's knowledge, I took the bike and went upto Meenambakkam near the airport. I was stopped by the police who asked me for the license and documents. I pleaded them for some time and then they asked me to leave (laughs)," she added.
Well, we must say that Sam's formative years were quite exciting indeed!
