A leaked telephonic conversation of a woman, allegedly dubbing artist Bhagyalakshmi, has gone viral on Whatsapp.
The dubbing artist has now come forward and said that it is not her voice.
Bhagyalakshmi cleared the air around the rumours about the audio clip through her recent Facebook status message.
"For the past few days, an audio message allegedly featuring my voice is doing the rounds on Whatsapp. It is a telephone conversation between a woman and her male friend. The duo discusses about the former's lost love. He might have leaked the conversation to the cyber space. I don't know who and what they are, but the clip is being shared on Whatsapp along with my photo.
Interestingly, everybody in the film industry will understand it isn't my voice and I am sure it is being spread by people outside the industry. Many asked me to file a complaint with the cyber cell, but I am not a fool and since I am sure it isn't my voice, I am not filing any complaint against this.
But I am posting this message as a reply to everyone who is trying to call and e-mail me. The people, who personally know me, will recognise my voice and that I am not a fool. However, I am sad to know that despite lending my voice for many notable characters in Malayalam cinema, the Kerala audience failed to recognise my voice.
If you are so eager to know whose voice it is, please listen to the audio carefully as the woman clearly says her name and place in it.
Now, if you still have doubts, let me tell you, my love wasn't like this," Bhagylakshmi posted on her Facebook page.
Meanwhile, the audio clip is a leaked conversation between two persons, one of who is understood to be related to the Malayalam entertainment industry. The woman in the audio calls herself Shana.
The viral audio message claims an illicit relationship the person allegedly had with a Malayalam actor and the rough phase in the actor's family life.
However, the audio dates back to 2006.
Bhagyalakshmi, a prominent dubbing artist of the industry, began her career at the age of 10. She has lent her voice to Sumalatha, Sobhana, Revathy, Urvashi, Sithara, Meena, Nagma, Tabu, Lissy, Sukanya, Padmapriya, Swetha Menon, Samyuktha Varma, Jyothika, Bhavana and Nithya Menen, among many others.
She was married to K Ramesh Kumar in 1985 and was officially divorced in 2014. The couple has two sons.
