Actress Shruthi Sawant, better known by her screen name Iniya, just had a burglary at her home in Thiruvananthapuram in which, approximately Rs 5 lacs in cash and valuable gold ornaments, also worth lacs, were stolen!
The police, along with their dog squad, have been mobilized and it is not known yet if there has been development in the search for the culprits. The actress lives at home with her parents and the theft, apparently took place when the family was out for a late night show of a movie.
The father of the 21 year old Kerala born starlet, told the media that the ornaments and the cash were for his daughter’s wedding, which they had collected over the years. No – it doesn’t mean Iniya is about to tie the knot soon (that we know of at least)!
The beautiful actress, with her dusky complexion and sultry looks had turned heads the first time in the Tamil movie – Vaagai Sooda Vaa – in which her performance was acclaimed critically and opened new doors for her.
It was for this movie that she changed her name to Iniya as she felt Shruthi was a very common name and didn’t stand out much. Anyway, Iniya became a recognised face especially because of the songs in the period flick like ‘Sara sara saara kaathu’ and ‘Poraney poraney’ which became chart topping hits.
Although it was Kollywood that welcomed the actress with open arms, she had done some minor work in Malayalam before; but undoubtedly it was the Tamil movie’s success that got her noticed and she went on to play a pivotal role in the Malayalam film Ayal starring Lal which also gathered up quite a few laurels.
Well, it looks like lady luck left her side with this incident though and hopefully the police manage to recover the stolen property.
