Malaysian actor allegedly sent lurid messages to married woman

MALAYSIA - The Malay language daily also reported that actor Mohamed Hadi Putera Halim, popularly known as Adi Putra, said his career was not affected by allegations that he had sent lurid messages and pictures to a married woman.

The 32-year-old said he, however, felt pressured because of the controversy.

Adi Putra said he was ready to face the controversy because it was all part of show business, which was subject to public scrutiny.

"I am not running away from this issue but I chose to remain silent to allow the police to investigate the case," he said, adding that he had the backing of his wife and family.
