Sonakshi Sinha has issued an official statement on the malicious rumours floating in the media in which she dismisses a non-bailable warrant against her as as "the work of a rogue individual" and has urged the media to not participate in what she describes as “harassment charade.” The actress is accused of fraud in a case dating back to 2019 where it is claimed that she failed to attend an event for which she had been reportedly paid Rs 30 lakhs.
Sonakshi’s official statement reads, “There have been rumours of a non bailable warrant issued against me floating in the media, without any verification from any authorities since a few days now. This is pure fiction and the work of a rogue individual trying to harass me. I request all media houses, journalists and news reporters not to carry this fake news as it is playing into this individual’s agenda to gain publicity.
It further reads, "This man is purely trying to gain some publicity and extort money from me by attacking my reputation which i have very proudly built over the years, by planting these malicious articles in the media. Kindly do not participate in this harassment charade. This matter is subjudice before the Muradabad court and has been stayed by the Allahabad High Court.My legal team will be taking all the necessary action against him for contempt of court. This will be my only comment on this matter until the Muradabad Court has passed its verdict, so please do not approach me for the same. I am home and i can assure you there are no warrants issued against me."
The organiser of the event, Pramod Sharma, alleged that he paid the actress to attend an event as the chief guest but she did not show up. He has filed a fraud case in Moradabad and is presumably the person has accused of attempting to harass her and extort money from her.
