Bipasha Basu and Kangana Ranaut HIT OUT at Gitanjali brand for illegally using their pics. Here’s ALL you need to know about Bipasha Basu and Kangana Ranaut’s issues with the Nirav Modi-founded brand.
Here comes yet another accusation against Nirav Modi and group. After Priyanka Chopra filed a case against the Punjab National Bank fraud accused earlier this week, Kangana Ranaut and Bipasha Basu have now opened up about their breach of contract issues . If reports are to be believed to be true then jewelry brand Gitanjali Gems founded by Nirav’s relative Mehul Choksi hasn’t yet paid Kangana for endorsing Nakshatra, one of the Gitanjali brands. Also, Bipasha who endorsed Gili has lashed out at the brand of using her photos even after the expiry of the contract.
Revealed Kangana’s spokesperson in interaction with Economic Times, “There is outstanding due on Kangana’s Nakshatra endorsement, beyond the stipulated contract.” The first we saw Kangana as the face of Nakshatra was in 2016. Apart from Kangana, Katrina Kaif and Aishwarya RaiBachchan too have endorsed Nakshatra.
Bipasha Basu, who collaborated with the brand in 2008, too didn’t hesitate in admitting how she lost out on quite a few brand endorsements, just because of this unprofessional behavior. “My managers then tried their best to stop Gili from using my pictures post my contractual period… but even though we sent them letters, they continued to use my pictures internationally too, because of which I lost many jewellery endorsements. Post my contract, for a couple of years till now, Gili used my pics even though legally they can’t.” , said the actress.
For all the uninitiated, Mehul Choksi of Gitanjali Gems along with Nirav Modi is an accused in the Rs. 11,300 crore banking scam. Apart from Priyanka, Bipasha and Kangana, speculations are rife that Sidharth Malhotra, too is said to be seeking legal options to sue Modi over non-payment considering he had previously endorsed Nirav Modi’s eponymous jewelry label but there’s still no official confirmation on it.
