The people of Lucknow are known for their tehzeeb (etiquettes). But the Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani actor’s experience with a locally run website from the city, has been quite different
Following constant harassment through falsities in articles on a website called bollygupshup.org, Evelyn Sharma has filed a complaint with Mr Dinesh Yadav, nodal officer, and head of Cyber Crime Cell of Lucknow Police, Uttar Pradesh.
The said website had put up various articles on the leggy lass within a span of a week, attacking her with false statements. Not only that, they incorrectly claimed that Sharma has undergone plastic surgery, was part of a film titled Joker, as well as put up false age, on the pretext of picking content from Wikipedia and IMDB, without verification.
Moreover, the website often tagged the babe on her Twitter account in the web links of these articles containing the fabricated information, in an apparent attempt to intimidate the actor on social media.
Requests for corrections by the actor’s publicist were ignored by the website, after which he filed a complaint with the cyber cops on behalf of the actor.
Since Evelyn is residing in Mumbai, the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell (CCIC) in Mumbai has also been informed. The complaints may be followed up with legal action for defamation.
