Marathi superstar Sai Tamhankar, star of the hit movie Ghajini hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons yesterday, being present as cops busted a raucous late night party in Pune on Sunday night.
Eight people, including a number of high profile individuals, were arrested by Kothrud police at the party in the plush Neelambari Apartments near Mehendale Garage. Police sources say that those arrested included hotelier Ganesh Shetty’s sons, architect Christopher Benninger and actor Shreerang Godbole.
All those taken into custody had been drinking heavily, according to police.
The incident happened after a vendor, who chose to remain unnamed, told police he saw a young woman, dresses in skimpy clothing, being molested by two young men outside the apartment on Karve Road.
Police turned up at the apartment shortly afterwards, where they found four women present, including actress Tamhankar.
The vendor told our reporter at the scene that the “outrageously dressed young woman only covered herself with a t-shirt given to her by one of the men in the apartment after the police showed up”.
“I must admit, I was surprised to find out who they were the next morning,” the vendor admitted.
Several of the group present in the apartment abused police officers, according to one of our sources, who responded by arresting all of the men present. However, for unknown reasons, the officers chose to let the women leave the apartment.
When asked about the bust earlier today, Tamhankar, also known for her starring roles in Rahul and Smita Thackeray’s Raada Fox movie, told reporters that “This is a very sad incident. I have no more comments to make, other than to say the whole experience was very sad.”
