Actress Samyuktha Hegde who rose to fame with Rakshit Shetty's Kannada film, Kirik Party, made her Tamil debut with Jayam Ravi's Comali directed by Pradeep Ranganathan. She was seen playing the role of Ravi's teenage lover. On the personal front, Samyuktha is a fitness freak who regularly posts her workout videos and exercises on her social media page. However, she met with an unfortunate series of events when she and her friends went to a nearby park for their workout. Samyuktha was harassed by the common public around for the fact that she was wearing a sports bra.

Samyuktha and her friends were verbally abused and attacked by the general public. Samyuktha, who was completely shocked by this incident, took to her Instagram page to share a live video explaining her problem. She revealed that an old lady attacked her friends at first and later it turned into a bigger problem. Talking in the video, she said, “What’s wrong with them? Guys, please help us, we were doing our workout and hoop stuff here and a lady suddenly came up and started attacking us. Trying to hit someone just because they were doing hoop dance, is absolutely wrong. The people here are unnecessarily dragging our names into the Kannada drug scandal issue and it is not at all true.

I am wearing a sports bra and pants and I was doing my workout in this dress. She tried to hit us and all of them have ganged up together against us. Corona Virus is still out there and we need to do social distancing, but come on look at them? She talks atrociously. We showed the video of the lady hitting my friend to the police, but still they are on her side and not standing for what is right. They are asking us to leave. We haven’t done anything wrong. I am glad that at least a few people came in support of us and told that we did nothing wrong.

This incident has created a huge buzz on social media and the video is doing rounds among the netizens. Samyuktha also posted the video of a lady attacking her friends on her official Twitter page and it has grabbed the attention of her followers.
