Yamuna is well known to Telugu audiences with ‘Mamagaru’ and several other films. After having a successful career in films, she acted in several serials and became a darling of female audiences. An actress of such reputation, however, had to face huge embarrassment a few years ago when she was caught in a prostitution scandal.
Yamuna, however, denied her involvement in the prostitution scandal and said that she was framed in the entire episode. ‘It was a mentally torturing experience. I didn’t go to the hotel that day, but I was made a culprit by few influential people. I wanted to commit suicide several times, but the concern for the future of my children kept me alive’.
