Exclusive: BB Tamil 2 fame Daniel Annie Pope says he and wife are Covid-19 negative, never flouted any rules and seeks help
Actor Daniel Annie Pope of Bigg Boss Tamil 2 fame has sought help from Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Health Minister and the Chennai corporation. He has taken to his social media to address his complaint as a tweet.
Daniel wrote, “My family is suffering due to @valasarawakkam corporation department. they are so rude and they making us suffer. Very urgent help need from @chennaicorp @CMOTamilNadu @Vijayabaskarofl @news7tamil @News18TamilNadu @ThanthiTV @polimernews kindly take immediate action (Sic)
Speaking exclusively to ETimes TV on this, Daniel Annie Pope said, “My residence is among the spots which is under intense observation by the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) to keep the Covid-19 spread under control. Two weeks ago, my wife Denisha Sahadevan, who was pregnant then, showed signs of Covid-19. Hence, our apartment was barricaded and we were asked to be in self-quarantine for over 14 days. Me and my family underwent tests and everyone tested negative. We are following the government protocols and completed that mandatory quarantine for over 14 days.”
He adds, “In the meantime, my pregnant wife Denisha Sahadevan was in frequent need of medical help. Denisha had to undergo cesarean surgery and we became parents recently. In this situation, Denisha was also in need of frequent medical treatment post delivery as well. Hence, we had to surpass the barricades at our residence a few times to meet the doctor. We haven’t stepped out unwantedly other than for medical requirements and are ready to share the CCTV footage, too.”
Daniel alleges that following the complaints from other neighbours, Corporation staff has stopped him and Denisha from visiting the medicos also.
Daniel says, “I am a law abiding citizen to the core. In spite of me and my family having tested Covid-19 negative, we are not even allowed to visit the hospital. Quoting the issue of asymptomatic spread of Covid-19, the Corporation staff reply in an undesirable manner with us. The tone and tenor of the staff is very rude and this has put our family under pressure. I expect an apology from the unruly Corporation staff for putting us through such hardships. The removal of barricades from our residence shall be welcome or at least, we should be permitted to take medical help for my wife without any trouble”.
Recently, Daniel shared the good news about becoming parents of a baby boy amid lockdown.
Daniel is focussing on his silver screen projects currently. Daniel was part of the judge panel of the shows Masala Cafe and Comedy Khiladis. Daniel Annie Pope became a household name post his stint in Bigg Boss Tamil season 2 show.
