Nidhi Subbaiah made her Telugu debut with Betting Bangaraju in 2010, in which she shared the screen space with Allari Naresh, shared a pic on her mircoblogging page, where she is seen sitting in Burbar Hall of Mysuru Palace. The pic, have raised many questions as to who gave the permission for the actress to take pictures inside the Palace and its ornate inner halls when the general public are not allowed. Even the actress has uploaded the photos on her Instagram account two days back. Nidhi Subbaiah has caught in Mysore Palace Photo-Shoot Row. In 2016, photos of a Bengaluru couple’s pre-wedding photo shoot inside the palace had created a nuisance and the palace is also out of bound for film shoots and photo shoots. No one is allowed to even carry cameras inside the inner sections. Even mobile phones are not allowed inside. During special occasions like Dussehra, media persons have to obtain special passes to photograph the ceremonies and rituals inside the Durbar Hall.
The last movie, which was shot inside the Palace was Dr. Rajkumar starrer Mayura. After that, no film crew was allowed to shoot the movie inside the Palace. On the otherside, in 2014, Kollywood Superstar Rajinikanth and his crew had approached the Palace authorities for permission as they wanted to shoot their movie Lingaa inside the Palace. But the authorities denied the permission and asked the team of Lingaa to shoot from outside.
When the few people asked T.S. Subramanya, Deputy Director of Mysore Palace Board, about actress Nidhi Subbaiah’s photo-shoot, he said that he had no idea when the actress Nidhi Subbaiah entered the Durbar Hall and photographs were clicked. According to Subramanya, he did not give permission to her. He added, “We allow people to take photos inside Durbar Hall and Kalyana Mantap. But film and serial shootings are not allowed.”
However, Nidhi Subbaiah denied allegations and said her pics were not meant for any movies or promotions and this pic was clicked during her personal visit to the palace.
