Veteran singer Anuradha Paudwal sternly dismissed any allegations of having given up a child for adoption. The statement comes days after a woman from Kerala, Karmala Modex, alleged that Paudwal was her birth mother.
Paudwal, speaking to the newspaper DNA, said, "I don't clarify idiotic statements. It is below my dignity."
The dismissal comes a day after Indian Express quoted Karmala Modex, a resident of Kerala, alleging that Paudwal was revealed to her as her birth mother by her foster parents. Modex said, "About four-five years ago, my foster father Ponnachan confessed on his deathbed that my biological mother was actually Anuradha Paudwal. I was told that I was four days old when I was handed over to my foster parents. Ponnachan, who was posted in the Army in Maharashtra at the time, was friends with Anuradha. Later, he got a transfer to Kerala.”
Paudwal's spokesperson was also quoted by the newspaper as saying, "This girl (Karmala) is a psycho. Anuradha’s daughter Kavita was born in 1974 so Karmala’s claims are false. This girl (Karmala) is mentioning Anuradha’s husband, but she doesn’t even know that he passed away a while back and if Karmala is Anuradha’s daughter, she should give Anuradha money and not demand 50 crores.”
Modex is reportedly seeking to pursue a legal option to find a solution. The 45-year old woman has filed a case in the district family court of Thiruvananthapuram.
