Super Star Mahesh Babu's 25th film Maharshi hit the screens in a grand manner today across the world. Even as fans are super excited and getting ready to enjoy the romance between ever handsome Mahesh Babu and ever red hot Pooja Hegde, they got a huge shock when rumours spread that she was caught for drunk driving while returning from the Maharshi's pre release event which was celebrated in a grand manner at People's Plaza, Necklace Road, Hyderabad.
Rumours spread that Pooja was caught drunk behind the wheel on her way back to her hotel after Maharshi’s pre-release event. It was also reported that her manager saved her from embarrassment by moving her to another car and driving her away from the scene.
However Pooja Hegde's manager, Hari rubbished all the rumours saying, “This tittle-tattle is absolutely baseless. Pooja wouldn’t dare to take the wheel in a city that she’s barely familiar with! In reality, the film’s production team commissioned a vehicle with a driver to drop the actress to the airport in time for her flight, which was scheduled to depart at 12.20 AM.
I read the story on several websites, which is when the urgency of the situation struck me. I do not know who is behind these rumours, but I believe that it is my duty to deliver a clarification.”
He contended that if it was legitimate, traffic police should have booked case against Pooja which didnot happen. Hari adds, “The rumour is entirely made up and yet, the media has been writing about it. I have resolved to take legal action against all those pursuing the lie.”
