Bengaluru: Still reeling under shock at the death of his relative Spandana, wife of Sandalwood actor Vijay Raghavendra, Congress MLC B K Hariprasad appealed to the mediahouses not to spread false rumours about Spandana’s health.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Monday, he urged the reporters to wait for the post mortem report of Spandana before jumping to conclusions.
Spandana, 41, was married to actor Vijay Raghavendra after being in love. Together, they have a son, Shourya. She is the daughter of retired Assistant Commissioner of police officer B K Shivaram, while Vijay Raghavendra is the cousin of Sandalwood actor Powerstar Puneeth Rajkumar. Puneeth Rajkumar had died of a heart attack while working out in a gym.
Hariprasad said that Spandana had gone on a vacation with her extended family to Bangkok. Her husband Vijay Raghavendra joined them later after completing his shooting commitments. “I am not aware of the details when they went on a foreign tour. But she had gone with her extended family. Her husband Vijay Raghavendra joined them later. When he reached she was a bit down. She did not wake up on Sunday and we are told that she suffered a heart attack. Her post mortem reports are awaited,” he said.
“I appeal to you all not to spread rumours about her health or the family. Let us wait for the post mortem report,” said Hariprasad.
The news of Spandana’s death has come as a rude shock to Vijay Raghavendra family.
Both Spandana and Vijay, who got married in 2007 after being in love were one of the most adored couples of Sandalwood. Their admiration for each other as couples was well known in the industry. On many occasions, actor Vijay Raghavendra had admitted that she makes his world wonderful.
Spandana had acted with Crazy Star Ravichandra in ‘Apoorva’ movie in 2016. However, she had devoted her time to family.
