Recalling the incident, Pragathi said that he was very nice to her all through the years. One that day she felt uncomfortable with the behaviour of the actor who acted a bit weird. The actress said that the incident happened around 11 am in the morning. She who couldn’t bear the cheap double meaning talk and dirty behaviour of the actor, waited for the shoot to wrap and confronted him in private.
“I met him in the caravan privately and asked him whether I did any gestures that made him to behave that way. I also asked him whether any of my body language invited him to approach me. When he said no, I told him what he did in the sets was completely unacceptable. I told him it was very cheap and expressed my discomfort with his behaviour.” the actress said who added that she made him realize that she could have confronted him in the sets in front of everyone but waited to talk to him privately keeping his image and societal status in mind. This revelation from the actress made the people belong to Cinema industry to raise their eyebrows wondering who could be the senior comedian.
