The actress then said when she spoke about this incident with her friends they questioned her how did you remain silent and did not slap him, "because usually, I slap these people back", said the actress. “At that time what I thought was, I come from a family with backing (cinema background family) and this person has come to my house and if this man is asking this question to me then how would he have behaved with other women?" shared Varalaxmi, she asked the man to leave and the man replied I think you are in a bad mood I will come back later.
