TIRUPATI: By donating Rs 15 crore-worth of property in Chennai to TTD, Kanchana, the yesteryear film heroine, proved that money was not the motive in her long legal battle against her parents.

Kanchana and her sister Girija handed over the registered documents of the property to TTD executive officer IYR Krishna Rao at his bungalow here.

The land and building are located in G N Chetty Street in Chennai. They requested the EO to construct a Kalyana Mandapam or Community Hall on the land.

Later, the sisters offered prayers at Tirumala.

Kanchana has been leading a secluded life in Yalahanka in Bangalore ever since she quit films in the late 80s. Born to rich parents -- Sastry and Vidyullatha -- who later frittered away all their wealth, Kanchana (original name Vasundhara) started her career as an air hostess and later entered films and became a successful heroine.

However, she was dealt a big blow by her parents who had treacherously transferred all her property in their name and reduced her to a pauper.

Shocked by the betrayal by her own parents, Kanchana left her film career midway through to lead an isolated life and launch what turned out to be a protracted legal battle which she has finally won now.

“I am not interested in land or property. I want justice to be done to me,'' Kanchana kept saying in interviews.
