Priya said, “We were trying to handle it together. Because everything was new to me as well as my family. It is true that I was not given cell phones or anything. For a few days I was under house arrest and I was not allowed to go out because my parents were tensed. The media people would turn up at my door without even informing.” The Oru Adaar actress shared that she would come back from school and find reporters waiting on her door. Her parents would make excuses to send them away, but they were persistent.
