- 'Appalled at how the scene has been circulated,' said Sanjjanaa
- 'I shot for it, but I was not nude,' said Sanjjanaa
- 'It shocks me,' she added
In a tweet on Thursday, the actress reassured that she wasn't nude when the scenes that are viral now, were filmed:
I will not shoot 100 percent nude even if it is a James Bond film, coming in from strong Indian culture I keep in mind my limitations. pic.twitter.com/O9Bz0UB2or— Sanjjjanaa galrani (@actressanjjanaa) July 20, 2017
Times Of India also quoted the actress as saying: "My character, Chandri, is a victim of sexual abuse in this scene, so this was meant to showcase that. I am appalled at how the scene has been circulated by people and has been shown repeatedly on media platforms. It shocks me that people want to share content like this among themselves."
Sanjjanaa also added that she was aware that the scenes, in which the actress' character is reportedly physically abused by jail authorities, could generate negative interest for the movie and could be termed as "sensational." However, the editing she expected was different. "I thought it would be shot aesthetically, but the way it has been picturized is downright vulgar. The fault is in the making. It might have been shot like that keeping the mass audience in mind," she told Times Of India.
However, necessary attempts to take the video down from the Internet have been taken and investigation to track down the source of the leak is also currently underway, she added in her interview. Meanwhile, director Srinivasa Raju refused to comment on the matter, reported Times Of India.
This is not the first time Dandupalya 2 is featuring in headlines. Previously, Dandupalya 2 captured top spots on Internet trends because of Sanjjanaa's reported troubled relationship with the film's team, states International Business Times. The actress reportedly opted out of promoting the film, claiming her co-star Pooja Gandhi was given more importance in the final cut.
The first part of Dandupalya released in 2012. Actors like Ravi Kale, Prakash Raj and Makrand Deshpande will reprise their roles in the second one. A third instalment of the film is expected to arrive in theatres next year.
