The 23-year-old victim, whose condition is said to be still serious, has expressed her wish to her family members to see Kichcha Sudeep. The victim has claimed that she is a true fan of the superstar and watched all his movies, family sources said.
She has told the family that she had watched his movies before the acid attack and she would like to meet him once. However, the family members have told her that Kichcha Sudeep is busy right now and pacified her for now.
