Poonam Pandey files £10.3 million defamation case
Poonam Pandey, who known mostly for her bold and sensual pictures on Twitter rather than acting, has never shied away from taking controversies by its horns.
The model-turned-actress has retaliated with the recent rumours of her having an abortion.
An agitated Poonam said: "I was busy shooting when I got to know about this story. I was disturbed and immediately called my manager to find out the truth.
“I also called the reporter and asked her very politely that what made her write such a report or whether she had any evidence.
“To my surprise she told me that there was no proof, but got to know about it from somewhere. I am really surprised by this kind of journalism and it hurts me to see people being so irresponsible."
So, Poonam – who is no mood to let this one go, has filed a defamation case against the media outlet.
Talking about it, she said: "I have filed a Rs 100 crore defamation case (a staggering £10.3 million to you and I) against the media house so that they think 100 times before writing anything like this against any celebrity!
“One more reason to file the case is that I am deeply hurt by such a baseless story."
She further reasoned that this was the only rumour that has affected her in a long time.
"It’s the first time I have got hurt with such a report. Nothing in the past has made me feel so bad. I am angry that how can someone use words like pregnancy and abortion about any woman without having any evidence about it," she wondered.
The 'Nasha' actress also insisted that her Twitter pictures and videos are for entertainment purpose and that it doesn't mean that people can take her for granted.
"My parents have never asked me anything or questioned me about my pictures or videos. This time, they too asked me about this abortion report and I am very angry that such an irresponsible report was written without any evidence.
“Tweeting semi-nude pictures is done for entertainment, but that doesn't mean anyone can cross the line. I have, in my whole life, never posted nude pictures. So, when I know my limits, I will not allow anyone to write rubbish stories about me," concluded Poonam.
