“Once in for all I’m stating the facts as to what happened with me in USA. I was traveling with my family from Vancouver to Las Vegas for a weekend holiday. When I was going through immigration, on finding out that I am an actress in the Telugu Movie Industry, I was questioned by the US Border officials as to the reason why I was traveling in the United States. The officials then told me about the scandal which was the first that I heard about it. On finding out that I have nothing to do with the said issue, the officials apologized to me and let me travel without any further problems. I came out publicly regarding the incident for the sake of propriety as I felt it’s best that I make a statement before anyone else assumes otherwise. The fact that I was embarrassed by the situation and very shaken up is a personal thing.
It pains me that the actions of a few bad people has tarnished the image of a vibrant and thriving industry. I hope the perpetrators of this scandal are punished as they deserve to be. I will continue to work hard as I always have and give my best performance as my loyal and loving fans and the huge audience that Telugu movies attract. The Telugu Movie Industry has been very good to me and I mind it very much when it’s image gets tarnished.
This is the last I will be saying regarding this incident and request the media to not print any stories quoting me without actually speaking with me.” said Mehreen Kaur in her press release.
