TV artiste attacked in filmy style
In true filmi style, an unidentified woman threw chilli powder on the 23-year-old artiste Dimple of Alwal and attacked her with an iron rod and paper cutter resulting in injuries because of alleged disputes over selection of the cast for a Telugu serial. But she mustered courage, pushed the attacker aside and drove down to a corporate hospital in Banjara Hills in her car.
The incident occurred when Dimple, along with her assistant Mani, was going to attend a shoot at Manikonda. Soon after reaching the Manikonda church, she stopped the car on noticing a woman lying on the main road and sent her assistant to enquire.
The woman, apparently pretending to be unconscious, suddenly lunged at Mani and threw chilli powder on the assistant. She also made a vain bid to throw chilli powder on Dimple and later attacked her. But the actress managed to escape and drove away from the spot along with Mani.
