Veteran actress Sangeetha has hit out at her mother Bhanumathi Balan.
On Friday, Sangeetha took to her Twitter and talked how her mother ill-treated her. She sarcastically thanked her mom for stopping her education, when she was just thirteen years old and making her work. And she added that her mom had exploited her for the comfort of her alcoholic and drug addict brothers and also made her sign many blank cheques.
Sangeetha further stated that her mom did not let her get married initially and even after she got married by her own choice the latter continued to disturb her husband and her family's peace. Sangeetha added that her mom had taught her how a mother should never be, which eventually taught her to become a strong and bold woman.
Sangeetha made the statement days after her mother complained to the Women’s Cell in Chennai that her daughter is trying to get possession of the house that she is living in and is chasing her out.
The house in question is at Valasaravakkam, Chennai, in which Bhanumathy stays on the ground floor and Sangeetha on the first floor. According to reports the property is in Sangeetha’s name and that the mother wants it in her brothers name.
Sangeeta is a known face in South Indian film industry and had a couple of major films in Malayalam as well. She made her debut in Malayalam with Gangotri starring Suresh Gopi. She played minor roles in films like Summer In Bethlehem, Kaadhale Nimmadhi, Ezhupunna Tharakan, Sradha.
She got her big break with roles in Khadgam and Pithamagan. Sangeetha’s grandfather KR Balan, had made many films with the late MGR.
Sangeetha is married to Krish and they have a baby girl.
