The dark-episode of Indian Premiere League's spot fixing is dragging many actresses, who have been connected with Sreesanth in one or the other way, into the controversy. First it was South actress Lakshmi Rai, who was very close to the defamed cricketer at one point of time. Now, Sanjjanna Galrani's name has been linked up to the ongoing controversy.
Last week, there were rumours that a few Sandalwood actresses, who work in other South film industries, have been quizzed by Delhi cops over their connection with Sreesanth. The first name that emerged from rumour mills was none other than Sanjjanna. It is simply because the actress, who was recently seen in Bigg Boss show, is a friend of Sreesanth.
However, Sanjjanna has denied any connection with the controversy or Sreesanth, but admits that she was a friend of the cricketer. Speaking to a leading daily, she explained that they met each other in 2009 in Goa. When the actress along with her friends was partying in the tourist's heaven, the cricketer was also in the place and they just bumped into each other at a music festival.

"We were good friends at one point of time and it's shocking to know that he's involved. This is not the Sreesanth I used to know. Back then, he was dedicated towards the sport and was ambitious about being a permanent player on the Indian team. I'm disgusted by the whole scandal," The Times of India quoted Sanjjanna as saying.
However, Sanjjanna denied that she was quizzed by the cops over the scandal. She confidently claims that let them check her phone records before questioning her on the issue. The 29-year old is not in touch with Sreesanth since a long time.
Sanjjanna further says that she doesn't think that any Sandalwood actress is involved in the episode. The actress ends on the note that she doesn't have anything to do with the scandal as she has not even attended one match this season.
On the professional front, Sanjjanna is gearing up for the release of her much-awaited Mahanadhi. Her forthcoming films are Agraja with Darshan, Rebel with Aditya. She also has two Telugu films in her kitty.
