When asked about the fall, she told a news site, “I accidentally fell down and hurt my hip while entering their house. I have been operated upon. I will rest for a few days in Mysuru. People of Kannada naadu (Kannada state) love me a lot. With their prayers and love, I will be fine. My fans are like my children and they have prayed for my welfare.”
