Priya Bhavani Shankar who started her career as a newsreader is now a popular actress in Tamil cinema. She has acted with many leading stars including Kamal Haasan, SJ Suriya, Dhanush, Simbu and Jayam Ravi.

In a recent interview, Priya Bhavani Shankar was reported to have said, “I only came to act for money.” Due to this, many people have started giving different opinions.

In response to this, she said that the media is acting as if the bridegroom will tie the knot only if he is given a Sombu (a utensil commonly used in Tamil Nadu) and the news about her statement is false. She posted on her official social media handle that she never made such a statement.

She further added that even if she did make the statement what is wrong with it? All actors act for money. Everyone works for money. Why do you speak badly only if an actor says it,” she posted on her Twitter page.
