The alleged incident reportedly took place while Mohanty and Mishra were on their way to the Bhubaneswar Airport to catch a flight to Chennai for their movie promotion. Satapathy and a couple of goons stop their vehicle. She then manhandled her husband and his co-star.
People who had gathered at the scene shot the incident and shared it on social media. The clip showed Mishra crying for help before running away from the scene.
“I and Prakruti Mishra have been invited as guests for Utkal Diwas celebration organised by Utkal Association here in Chennai. I am here to announce a new film and promote another as well in which Prakruti is my co-actor. She is a very good friend of mine and so I had gone to pick her up from airport,” Mohanty said about the incident, Odhisha TV reported.
“On way to the airport, suddenly my wife and father-in-law came and attacked us and harassed Prakruti which was totally unacceptable. I have no other complaints because I understand my wife’s feelings since she does not belong to film industry, so she has no idea about our work and how we work. I am in complete shock. That’s it.”
“As an actor, I have no other option than to work with several other female co-actors which is natural. My wife needs to understand the nature of my work. People will say many things but I know I am right,” he added, the outlet reported.
Who is Trupti Satapathy?
Trupti Satapathy is the daughter of businessman Lalit Satapathy. She studied management from a Bhubaneswar-based management institute. She and Mohanty studied at DAV public school. They dated for close to 5 years before tying the knot in a private ceremony at Mayfair Hotel, Bhubaneswar, on April 6, 2014. She was 23 when she got married, Social Raze reported.
Though their wedding was attended by only family members and close friends, their reception, which was held at Nicco Park, Bhubaneswar, was attended by prominent Ollywood actors, producers and directors.
The couple welcomes their first child on April 6, 2021.
“A little angel arrived in our life yesterday. I want to share this joy and happiness with you all. Seek your blessings for our little baby boy,” Mohanty wrote on Instagram while sharing the news of the child’s birth.
