On Monday, Hema released a video to the press in which she claimed that her name was dragged in for no reason and that she was at a farmhouse on the outskirts of Hyderabad.

She said in the video, “I have not gone anywhere, I am enjoying and chilling at a farmhouse in Hyderabad. Please don’t believe rumours. I don’t know who’s there, it’s fake news that I was at the party.” She also released a video on Tuesday of her cooking at home.
