Why Would I Want To Hurt Akshara’s Reputation?” Tanuj Virwani Clears  The Air

Reports on Friday morning hinting that  the leaked private pictures of Kamal Haasan and Areeka’s daughter  Akshara Haasancould have a link to her ex-boyfriend actor Tanuj Virwani(son of  veteran actress Rati Agnihotri) have not perturbed Tanuj at all.

Shooting non-stop for  the second season  of the Amazon series Inside Edge   Tanuj took time  off to clarify,  “Throughout the time that Akshara and I were  in a relationship we never spoke  about  it. I am not the kind of person who uses his personal relationships for personal gains. You asked me about Akshara when I was dating her and  I always said we were good friends. I am sorry I didn’t talk about the relationship then. It’s unfortunate I’ve to  talk about it now.”

Reports  about the leakage eof Akshara’s private  pictures on the phone which  only Tanuj had access to ,  have upset  Tanuj   . “This is not  a good thing to happen to any woman or  girl. I  am very upset  that this has happened to Akshara. I  was protective of her when we were seeing one another. I continue to be  protective  of her now even after our breakup some  years ago which by the way was most cordial and amicable.”

To  his credit Tanuj doesn’t deny having Akshara’s photos on his phone. “When you are in relationship  you exchange  intimate  things.At that time(when in a relationship) you  never think the closeness would end .So yes,  I did have intimate  pictures of Akshara on my phone, and I am sure she had mine on hers. But let me tell you I am so  apprehensive  of technological theft into private spaces that I deleted every picture the minute it came to me. So  there is  no question of the pictures coming  from my phone. I was  very sure of not keeping any picture on my phone.So they couldn’t be stolen from my phone.”

Tanuj sees this ugly insinuated allegation as a  sign  of the times. “We are living through very dangerous times. We need to be  very careful of our conduct in public  spaces.And I am. An individual’s  reputation  is built  over  many years. It is destroyed in seconds .Nowadays  anyone can  say anything about about anyone on the social  media.”

Tanuj  is extremely confident about proving his  innocence. “Akshara asked me if I had given my phone  for repairs. I believe that she believes  in  my innocence, And as long as she doesn’t hold me responsible for the  leaked pictures I am  fine. Because the truth is  on my side. I am  willing to co-operate with the law in every way possible. I  haven’t received any call from the cops yet. When I do I am ready  to answer any question. Because I’ve nothing to  hide.”
