Shamna Kasim opens up about blackmail case
Mollywood actress Shamna Kasim had been busy with the shooting of a Telugu reality show in Hyderabad for the past few days. Amidst this, she also acted in a multi-lingual movie ‘ Thalaivi’ based on the life of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. When she was busy with the shootings, some people visited her family with a marriage proposal. Later, the actress and her family realized that a group of fraudsters was behind the marriage proposal. Following this, the police uncovered a big racket of fraudsters who trapped young women.
In an interview with Mathrubhumi Grihalakshmi, Shamna opened up about falling prey to the fake marriage proposal and blackmailing.
Background of the cheating case
During that time, my family was searching for marriage proposals for me. The fraudsters contacted my family pretending as family members of the groom. In the initial phase, they approached us well. But, we were too late to realize that they have given fake address, photo and name. All the accused who were arrested in the case are married and have children.
They cheated me and my family. Maybe I will forget all this as a bad experience. But, some girls who have similar experience are not so strong. Now, I realize the situation of girls who commit suicide after getting cheated over a marriage proposal.
Lessons from the bitter experience
I think that the situation in our society is turning worse. Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, everyone is going through many tensions. In such a time, fraudsters are exploiting us.
Celebrity status and fraudsters
In the extortion case, even students have lodged complaint against the accused. So ordinary people are also falling prey to such cheating. The cheating cases make headline when celebrities like me are involved.
But I was really shocked over the murder of a woman using snake. I think we can not find such a cruel murder even in movies.
