Odisha Minister's kin, actors shoot in restricted Hirakud area



Three Odia film actresses and the daughter of Odisha Health Minister Nabakishore Das have courted controversy for allegedly shooting a video in the prohibited area of Hirakud reservoir in Sambalpur.

The video has gone viral on social media after one of the actresses shared it on Instagram.

In the video, actresses Prakruti Mishra, Elina Samantray and Lovina Nayak are seen enjoying themselves in the restricted areas of the reservoir with the Health Minister's daughter Dipali Das.

Sambalpur Superintendent of Police (SP) Kanwar Vishal Singh on Monday asked the Hirakud sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) to submit a report in this regard.

The SP said necessary action will be taken on the basis of the report.

"I have not seen the video and don't have any idea about the same. My daughter is a grown-up girl. You can ask her. Law will take its own course," said the Health Minister on his daughter's video with the actresses.
