Social media users were in for a rude shock on Tuesday as a photo of actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar where she is seen tied up on a bed was doing the rounds on the Internet since morning. In no time, the image went viral on various social media platforms with the hashtag #VaralaxmiGotKidnapped.
While a few users took to news websites and TV channels to know the veracity of the image, many believed that the pretty actress was in dire straits. Later, Varalaxmi herself took to Twitter explain the truth behind the photo.
The photo was circulated as part of a movie promotion and interestingly, the actress was unaware of it. She wrote: ''I'm absolutely fine.. thank u for ur concern..it's a part of our movie promotion.. announcement at 6pm..!!'' (sic)
Later, she added, ''I wasn't aware of this promotion as I'm in delhi representing my Save shakti petition to the Law ministry..Sorry for the trouble..!!''
