Remember the film Vaada Chellam and its heroine Caroline Mariyah? The actress has just been arrested by the Pune police in Maharasthtra on charges of being part of a ‘flesh trade’ racket in the city. The arrest was made at a leading five-star hotel in the city.
22-year old Caroline has played heroine in some insignificant films including Vaada Chellam. Caroline’s hero in Vada Chellam was ‘Master’ Mahendran, the young hero who has done many films as a child and boy artiste. She has also appeared in many commercials and advertisements promoting leading jewellery and textile stores. Sources close to the actress say that lack of offers to star in films might have pushed the actress to stoop to this level.
Caroline reportedly charges Rs.3 lakh from customers to spend a night with her. Inspector of Police Bhanupratap, who raided the hotel’s premises and arrested the actress, says that the police had spread a net after getting prior information about the prostitution at the hotel.
“We came to know that Caroline is a Tamil heroine hailing from Chennai. We have also arrested Rajkumar, who is Caroline’s manager and manages all her ‘affairs’ and taken both of them into custory,” said the cop. A case has been registered against the actress at the Vimaan Nagar Police Station in Pune.
