Actress Trisha was recently spotted in a mini-controversy when she was seen arguing with the police personnel as well as those who had assembled in queue outside the polling booth in Chennai’s Alwarpet where the actress had been to cast her vote on the Election day i.e. on Wednesday.
Photographs of Trisha arguing (quarrelling?) with the public and the cops sent disturbing messages to her fans and to the members of the welfare club she had launched.
It is said that trouble erupted as when Trisha along with her mother Uma and grandmother went directly headed to the polling booth to cast her vote without bothering to stand in queue.
Irked by this, a voter in the queue demanded that Trisha should join the queue. This resulted in a heated argument and following police intervention Trisha joined the queue as demanded. However, her grandmother, who is a senior citizen, was taken to the polling booth without having to wait in the queue.
When contacted, Trisha vehemently denied that she had entered into argument or quarrelling either with the cops or with the voters.
She says “It wasn’t wrong to ask me to stand in queue…but the arrogant and disrespectful manner in which he told me was not proper. It is regrettable that we actresses are always taken for granted.
“When I am spoken to in a harsh manner by somebody, I repay in the same coin and react in the same way. The same happened at the booth. The guy spoke harshly and in a rough manner and I retorted. Had he been more polite, I would have been equally courteous. I want to set the record straight and that’s why I’m offering the explanation,” concludes Trisha.
But why did you try to avoid the queue m’am?
