Mumbai: Not many are aware that the right-arm fast-medium-pace bowler and right-handed tail-ender batsman Shanthakumaran Sreesanth was a national break-dance champion when he was in his eighth grade in school. But the recent dance of media allegations on his Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) colleague and Aazaan actor Sachiin Joshi has got the seasoned cricketer stumped!
Sreesanth has said that he is shocked and stunned that the media has created a scandal between his colleague Sachiin Joshi and CCL brand ambassador and Southern actress Priyamani.
Recently, a prominent Hyderabad publication incorrectly reported that Sachiin teased Priyamani in an “allegedly inebriated” state at a party after a CCL match. The paper ‘insisted’ that he tried to “hold her hand” and “hug” Priyamani, rubbing the damsel’s “ego” the wrong way at an after-party.
While Sachiin’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar as well as Priyamani’s mother denied the incident, the paper still went ahead and printed the incorrect story.
This infuriated the actress, who says, “We (Priyamani and Sachiin) were just unwinding after the matches. I don’t understand why a story like this has been circulated. All it does is harm Sachiin and my reputations.”
Now Sreesanth too has stated that, “Nothing like this ever happened. The entire episode is fabricated and a figment of someone’s imagination.” Hope Sreesanth’s version puts this controversy to rest once and for all!
