The actor was accused of defaming the maker of Mere Dost Picture Abhi Baaki Hai, a movie that released on July 20, 2012
The story begins with Udita Goswami raising doubts in an interview over releasing a movie, Mere Dost Picture Abhi Baaki Hai, seven years after it was made. When her comment on the delay of his movie reached the producer of MDPABH, Ragini Sona, he promptly slapped a case of defamation against her.
Goswami wasn’t in a mood to suffer silently. So she hit back by sending a legal notice to Sona. Throwing some light on the matter Udita’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee said, “She is fully aware that no false statement has been made by my client (Udita), nor has she defamed anyone or created any negative publicity for the said film in any manner whatsoever.” He also added that his client went through mental torture and monetary loss as a result of the defamation case.
What’s more, the legal notice sent to the producer stated, ‘If Ragini does not withdraw the false statements, unconditionally and irrevocably within two days from the date of receipt of this notice, Udita shall initiate both civil and criminal proceedings against her which could also result in claiming an amount of Rs 5 crore.’
Curious to know how Sona’s lawyer Ashok Sarogi replied to it? Well, here’s what he stated – “We will file our reply and will carry on with the defamation suit in the court.”
Dear Udita, with so much drama unfolding in your real life, we sure think that you in no way miss appearing on the big screen more often. Right? Wink, wink.
