Former Bigg Boss Contestant Caught Drunk Driving?

She clarifies!

Gayathri Raghuramm, who was a part of the first season of the reality show Bigg Boss Tamil, was accused of drunk driving. Reports did the rounds that she was driving her SUV under the influence of alcohol and when caught by the traffic police, she confessed that she had had alcohol and requested them to drop her.

She was reportedly returning home from a party that was organised at a star hotel in MRC Nagar.

Reports also stated that she was booked for drunken and rash driving, having paid Rs 3500 as fine. However, the dancer took to social media to respond to these reports.

“To hide something else I’m the news. Pen and paper can be strong. But not stronger than my soul and life. Continue writing and I continue to live stronger,” she wrote, followed by a series of tweets saying what happened. “The one who created this fake news he was press reporter who was caught drunk and driving. I finished my shoot and was dropping my co-star at home. I was stopped for normal checking. No such incident fighting with a cop ball press reporter ended up writing whatever came in mind,” Gayathri wrote.

According to a few sources, a case under Section 185 (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs) of the Motor Vehicles Act has been filed but the matter is being blown out of proportion.

Gayathri Raghuram is the daughter of dance master Raghuram. While she made her film debut with Charlie Chaplin, starring alongside Prabhu Deva, in 2002 and starred in a few other films since then, she has largely been known as a choreographer and was even known for her stint in the reality show last year, having been evicted on day 56.
