MANGALURU: Kannada television actress and Kannada BiggBoss finale contestant Sania Iyer created a ruckus on stage after a youth allegedly tugged at her hand for taking a selfie during a Kambala organised in Puttur taluk in the district.
The incident occurred on Saturday night, but a video of the fracas is now doing the rounds on social media.
Sania had come to Mangaluru to take part as a guest at the Koti-Chennaya Jodukere Kambala event with her friends. She started her speech by addressing the audience saying “I love you, Puttur”. One among her fans, who sat in front row, repeatedly shouted saying, “I love you, Sania”. As she got down from the dais after her speech, the youth allegedly tried to tug at her hand to take a selfie, but she refused.
Angered by youth’s behaviour, some locals allegedly assaulted him. As soon as they realised that he was drunk, they sent him out from the event venue. However, no complaint has been filed on this regard. It is said that Sania took the event organisers to task after the incident.
