Ekta Kapoor sues BollywoodLife!

Read to know what upset the Czarina of Television that she had to take legal action against us

We were going about doing what we love best (giving you guys the biggest scoops and news breaks) when we got an email alert from none other than Ekta Kapoor. Well, not from her personal account, but her lawyers who sent us a letter with a subject: ‘Caution Notice’. For all of us whose understanding of legal terms comes from watching episodes of Ally McBeal or Boston Legal, this shook the ground beneath our feet!

On further scrolling through the legal notice we were informed that a certain article on our website talked about Ekta wanting to write a book about her life and since she’s so busy she’s asked someone else to do it for her! Ekta’s legal document instructed us to do the following within 24 hours (it’s Ekta, so we can’t expect anything less dramatic than a deadline!)

- Desist from publishing any article that creates an unauthorised association of our clients with a third party

- Rectify the article and issue a public clarification/apology

- Provide our clients name of the source who gave you that article

- Furnish us with proof that you have compiled to the above mentioned

We don’t know where to start, but Ekta if you are reading this, then these are four points you could ask your legal team to look into:

- How about doing some groundwork before sending us a legal notice? The alleged article we uploaded was sourced from another publication who put it up way before us

- Forget telling you the source, if we did have access to the person who was writing your biography we would have put out a bigger and juicier item than a mere news report

- If there’s anyone who deserves an apology then it’s us! For getting a notice for something we didn’t do (we plead not guilty your honour!)

So, here’s what we ask anyone who plans to send us notices in the future to do, start by doing a Google search, do some research, and just cause we are the BIGGEST digital name in Bollywood and entertainment doesn’t mean we will get cowed down by your bullying! Peace!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    love to see BL sticking to its guns, by far the best site for Bollywood news and gossip. love it

  • Yatim

    Kudos to courage of bollywoodlife, the stars should have more patience towards media!

  • Amir

    What do you all idiots here know about Ekta Kapoor to be so judgmental and abusive towards her? All your information is merely hearsay which you get from crappy publications and frustrated losers who don’t know better. Do you even know her? The fact that thousands of livelihoods are dependent on her production house alone merits a regard. And who so ever works for Ekta has nothing but praise for her for so many lives she has changed. And here you idiots have nothing better to do than show your true class. Shame on you all.
    And BL stealing another publication’s stale article doesn’t speak much for your integrity or class either. The least you could have done was clearly mentioned the same and stated that the authenticity of the stolen article wasn’t verified by you, or not have carried it at all. The notice is well served.

      and all the material Balaji stole makes you think we had integrity? Unless you worked there like I did, you have no clue. We paid people off and had critics in our back pocket. Glad I left

  • arohi

    huh what ekta, even I want to sue bollywoodlife for such crappy articles they publish

  • Aahil

    We support you Bollywoodlife !!

  • guest

    So much sass. I love it.

  • BalajiEX

    The Balaji Team is a bunch of coke heads, alcoholics and casting couch coaches that visit massage parlors, pimp women out and make our country generally dumber. Good for Bollywood life for giving them the finger.
