A source says, “This actress has been working in south Indian films for a while now and it was the director who first spotted her. He then grew close to her and ever since, he has apparently been taking special care of his leading lady. In fact, during the promotions of their film, he made sure that this actress was promoted well. He has now been recommending her name to other filmmakers as he is looking out for her.”
To add to this, the director is a married man with kids; although his family is not aware of his relationship. The actress, meanwhile, credits him for having given her a big opportunity in Bollywood. “She has been spotted with him on several occasions. During the shooting of the film, the crew grew suspicious of them as they would spend a lot of time together in his room,” says the source.
