Speaking about the unpleasant situation, she says, “I was shooting for a Telugu film with Sarva in Hyderabad and was getting ready for a scene in my vanity van when I heard a commotion. When I stepped out to enquire, I saw that a huge crowd had gathered outside and was creating a ruckus. They saw me and wanted me to say Jai Telangana. I said it because I was concerned for my safety but they insisted thats I should say it again in front of a camera. When I refused, they started using obscene language and said the entire incident was being covered by a news channel. I lost my cool at that point.”
She added, “later, when I got in my car I saw that both windows were damaged. Luckily, I didn’t get hurt but it happened in broad daylight with police around. I’ve never felt so unsafe anywhere in the world.”
Shriya Saran used micro blogging site Twitter to disclose the incident. She tweets,”How can they break my car, throw stones, stop shoot and threaten me to say Jai Telangala on TV. That to in broad day light, Police staring at all of this! what about freedom? Safety?”
The actor seems to remain safe during the occurrence as she tweets, “Thank god the stone didn’t hit me. Both the windows are broken. Seriously! I’m disgusted I’m born in India and I deserve my freedom and safety is my right!”
