Reportedly, the actor was accused of sending lewd messages including pornographic clips to a co-star. The lady first approached the production house but when nothing changed she complained to CINTAA, who advised her to knock the doors of the cops.
After the incident Ballal was arrested on 16 July from the sets of his show Udann and later on was granted anticipatory bail on the same date.
After his bail from the court, Sai in a conversation with Tellychakkar.com opened up about the allegations against him.
Sai said, “I have been in this industry for almost two decades now and whatever I have earned today is all due to my hard work and the efforts I have put in. I took twenty years to reach this position, but never played any dirty games like these. I will just state that it is a disgusting and cheap way to claim fame and due to such people the industry suffers. Such things should not ever happen.”
“All my colleagues know what the truth is and they are with me. Shama (his wife- Shama Deshpande) knows everything and she is with me through all these. I have told her everything as I have nothing to hide. Apart from this I cannot comment much as the case is sub-judice,” concluded the actor.
