According to reports, Ramya Krishnan’s car (TN07 CQ 0099) was inspected at the Muthukadu check post on the East Coast Road during a regular vehicle check. The cops were checking all the vehicles coming from Mahabalipuram in Chengalpattu district which were moving towards Chennai.
While the ‘Baahubali’ actress and her sister were reportedly present in the car during the time of inspection, sources claim that 8 bottles of liquor and two crates of beer were found inside the vehicle. The officials seized the bottles as it is against the rules of the lockdown. The 59-year-old actress is yet to release an official statement on the issue.
Though the sale of alcohol has been permitted in other districts of Tamil Nadu, all Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation (TASMAC) outlets in Chennai are yet to get opened as it is a “red zone”. This has led people to purchase liquor from neighbouring districts and bring to Chennai.
With her impeccable performance as Sivagami in the hugely popular Baahubali franchise, Ramya Krishnan has received global recognition. She also bagged immense fame for her portrayal of J. Jayalalithaa in Gautham Menon’s web-series Queen.
