What did AV Raju say about Trisha?

In the viral video, AV Raju says that allegedly A Venkatachalam asked Trisha for sexual favours and it was arranged by MLA Karunas. This happened in Kuvathu in Chennai. AV Raju further said that many actresses were there and whoever wanted to fulfill their desires turned up. As alleged by Raju, Venkatachalam specifically asked for Trisha and he emphasised on wanting a young woman and they paid her ₹25 lakh for it.


However, after receiving flak on social media and by the actress herself, Raju said that he is being wrongly accused and wrongly interpreted for what he said. He further added that it was the agenda of the video to show the AIADMK party senior members in a bad light. He also claimed that he had no intentions of targeting actors and apologised to Trisha and a few directors and cinema personalities.
