Aishwarya Rai Sends Legal Notice to Madhur Bhandarkar
Consider yourself warned – Use me and get sued.
This is essentially the message conveyed by the legal notice sent by pregnant Bollywood star, Aishwarya Rai to her former producer and director Madhur Bhandarkar.
The actress’ legal notice warned Madhur and any of the people involved in the production house against leaking the photographs taken of her for the supposed promotion of the ‘Heroine’ movie.
What Aishwarya wants is that the producers and the director of the film Heroine to not be able to use Aishwarya’s name and her pictures while promoting the film. Through her lawyers, Rai said she will seek damages if the pictures she shot for the film earlier ever gets leaked out to the media.
If you will recall, Rai was unceremoniously sacked following her announcement of her pregnancy.
A source said, “Aishwarya is wary about the extensive photo-shoot that she has done for the film. She was shot in numerous costumes. There were also a few shots that were canned as a test run. She is wary that those scenes might be leaked out as a promotion for the film.”
“Ash has already returned her acting fees, so there’s nothing that makes her liable to her director or producer. She is still upset with the way Madhur wrote a huge blog against her which basically called her a liar. She always wanted to come back and complete the movie, but the way things turned out, has left a bad taste in her mouth,” the source added.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
