Known for her roles in films like Oru Naal Koothu, and Thimiru Pudichavan, Tamil actor Nivetha Pethuraj on Tuesday hit back over false reports claiming that a politician was allegedly spending lavishly on her.

Taking to her X (Formerly Twitter handle), Nivetha wrote, “Lately there has been false news circulating about money being lavishly spent on me. I kept quiet because I thought people who are speaking about this will have some humanity to verify the information they receive before mindlessly spoiling a girl’s life.” (SIC)

Nivetha further claimed that she comes from a very dignified family and has been financially independent and stable since the age of 16. Her family still resides in Dubai for over 20 years.

“Even in the movie industry, I have never ever asked any producer or director or hero to cast me or give me movie opportunities. I have done over 20 films and it was all that found me. I was and never will be greedy for work or money. I can confirm that none of the information spoken about me so far is true. We live in a rented house in Dubai since 2002,” she wrote in her post.

Nivetha also requested journalists to verify the information they receive before spoiling a family’s reputation and not to put her family through any more trauma.
