Confirming the news to a leading news portal, Upasana said, “I was returning to my hotel from the last day of my shoot. Usually, the distance between my shoot location and hotel was covered in 45 minutes but that day it was over two hours and I was still on road. When I asked the driver he said he has lost the way. Following this, I asked him to ask for the way in that case but his response alerted me. I asked him to stop the car but he refused and later even deliberately messed up with the engine of the car. I warned him of consequences and called my family members and police. They reached on the spot and arrested the driver.”

She further added, “I wanted to go for a stern punishment because if can happen to me, it can happen to anyone but then I decided to let it go post he wrote an apology letter.”
