Actress Kangana Ranaut has accused the PR firm that had been working for her until now of circulating negative stories about her and sent a legal notice to them. It is also reported that Kangana had earlier too warned her publicist against such stories, but to no avail.
According to a report published in mid-day.com, the notice that was sent by the actress’ lawyer reads: “The representatives of your company out of bitterness then malafidely, mischievously and intentionally started spreading various false and absolutely misleading stories against my client to the media therein trying to cause serious damages to my client’s name, image and reputation.”
“My client has sufficient proof which prima facie suggest that such stories are being circulated by the representatives of your company… on behalf of my client (I) call upon you to immediately stop indulging in such mischievous and malafide acts failing which I have been given peremptory instructions to immediately file both civil and criminal case of defamation against your company as well as initiate other appropriate proceedings at the risk, cost and consequences of your company.”
While Kangana was not available for comment, her lawyer, Rizwan Siddiquee, was quoted as saying, “My client has been deeply disturbed by the false and misleading stories being circulated about her on public platforms and media, by people with malafide intentions and ulterior motives.”
The PR firm chose not to comment on the issue.
