Ramya clar­i­fies on her ab­sence from Ambi’s fu­neral af­ter fan back­lash

Evening Today - - FRONT PAGE -

Ben­galuru: Ac­tress Divya Span­dana aka Ramya, who has been fac­ing a back­lash from film fans for not at­tend­ing the fu­neral pro­ces­sion of ac­tor-turned-politi­cian M H Am­ba­reesh and for not ar­riv­ing in Ben­galuru or Mandya to pay homage to the de­parted leader, has is­sued a clar­i­fi­ca­tion.

Ramya, who is also the head of AICC’s so­cial me­dia team, in­formed the state Congress lead­ers that she was un­able to fly to Mandya or Ben­galuru due to se­vere in­juries on her lower limbs.

Speak­ing to the me­dia, Ma­jor Ir­ri­gation Min­is­ter D K Shivaku­mar in­formed that Ramya had spo­ken to all the se­nior Congress lead­ers about her in­jury. “She wanted to come down but she was not in a po­si­tion to travel. The fans must un­der­stand,” in­formed DKS.

Mean­while, Ambi’s fans are up­set with Ramya and have flooded so­cial me­dia with mes­sages at­tack­ing her for not pay­ing homage to her now-de­ceased men­tor.
