Kannada actress Sanjjanaa, whose name has been dragged into the IPL spot-fixing controversy, has clarified that she has no connection with tainted cricketer Sreesanth or the controversy.

A section of the media had named Sanjjanaa,  Lakshmi Rai, Daisy Boppanna and Surveen Chawla in the spot-fixing controversy. “This is baseless speculation without any evidence or proof. Among the southern heroines, I am a prominent face in Karnataka and so I became a desirable target,” said Sanjjanaa.

According to Sanjjanaa, there are no bookies with names like Sahu, KK, etc., mentioned in the papers. “I happened to speak to my father’s lawyer who gave me details about the bookies and we did not find any such names in the list. This is definitely a cooked-up story. They have mentioned that a heroine was wearing high heels and another heroine with an angular face, but there is no name of the cop to whom they have mentioned the details to,” said the actress. She clarified she has not been approached by the police till date. “No police officer has contacted me. ”

Sanjjanaa said she has not been in touch with Sreesanth after 2009.
