Tamil cinema witnessed a bizarre press meet today( september 15 2011) when actress turned producer Sona convened one to announce that she was a victim of a rape attempt. She accused actor — producer S P B Charan of attempting to rape her and treating her derogatorily at the Mankatha success party.
According to Sona, she attended the Mankatha success party thrown by Vaibhav and team where Charan grabbed her and attempted to sexually assault her. She also mentioned that Venkat Prabhu tried to pull away an inebriated Charan from assaulting her. Earlier, Sona visited the Pondy Bazaar police station and lodged a formal complaint against Charan for attempted rape. Sona declared that she would immolate herself if Charan do not come out with a public apology for this assault on her.
Her press meet was widely attended by media houses.
Sona hospitalised for chest pain,FIR against SPB Charan
Sexy Sona Heiden has been admitted to a leading private hospital after she complained of chest pain. Only a couple of days back, the actress accused playback singer-producer S.P.B. Charan of attempting to ‘rape’ her at a crowded cocktail party held in connection with the success of Venkat Prabhu’s latest directorial venture Mankatha.
The sultry seductress filed a complaint with the Pondy Bazaar Police and then called a press-conference to narrate the sequences of events leading to the attempted ‘rape’ on her. She was almost sobbing while speaking to presspersons and said that people tend to take for a ride the life of a ‘sexy actress’ like her. “We are actresses of course but we too are humans at heart,” she said.
Based on her complaint, the police have reportedly filed an FIR against singer-producer-actor SPB Charan, son of legendary playback singer S.P. Balasubramaniam, alleging sexual assault. The FIR says that Charan touched sensitive parts of her body and forced her to share the night with him. In the mean time, Sona complained of chest pain and depression and was admitted to a private hospital. She is under treatment at present.
Talking to us, she said, “I didn’t sleep properly for the last two days. I called up my doctor and he gave me sleeping pills. But, it didn’t have any effect. Yesterday morning, I had severe chest pain. The doctors have told me that I’m suffering from panic anxiety attacks, which simply means I’m scared!”
Sona said she felt threatened by the incident. “I may not be a Nayanthara or Trisha or Shriya. But I’m still a woman who is looking forward to getting married and settling down in life. This incident will kill me all my life. I had earlier said that I would commit suicide if Charan doesn’t apologise to me in public. But, I have decided to fight for my dignity,” she said.
When contacted, all Charan said was, “I wouldn’t like to talk without consulting my advocate. I don’t want to throw words like she (Sona) did and I will definitely have legal action taken for this. I will soon have a press meet to clarify this.”
A family member of SP Balasubramaniam speaking to us, said, “SPB cancelled his recording in Hyderabad and flew back to Chennai. He broke down and urged Charan to go for a public apology. He even gathered Charan’s close friends and suggested they go for some sort of settlement.”
Commenting on justice delivery in such cases, commissioner of police, J.K. Tripathy, said, “Every case is important to us. It doesn’t matter what the profile of the people is. We are trained to get to the bottom and decipher the truth from the many versions. We can also seek help from other agencies and our trained experts will investigate fully.”
