This is to place on record that a completely false and defamatory article appeared today on Kangna Ranaut, in one of the leading publication stating the actor was claiming to be younger than she really is. The article displayed an obvious intention by sources quoted to damage the reputation of Kangna Ranaut.
The editor of the newspaper has been contacted by Kangna Ranaut's representatives on this issue, and shown proof to the contrary of what has been published. The publication has consequently apologised and agreed to carry a public retraction on the story tomorrow.
An article such as this, however, is defamatory in nature, and tarnishes the image of the actor in the eyes of the public, and particularly the members of the film and entertainment industry and other people associated with it.
Kangna Ranaut is an established and reputable personality in the film and entertainment industry and the statements made in the article adversely affect her reputation. The contents of the article have caused her tremendous mental anguish and trauma.
In the aforesaid circumstances Kangna Ranaut has asked that the publication tender an unconditional and unequivocal apology for the false statements made in the article about her, and retract the contents of the article in the same publication. The publication has agreed to do so.
She also plans to adopt appropriate criminal and/or civil proceedings against the publication for printing false and defamatory articles about her without verification of facts prior to publishing, and for the tremendous mental anguish caused by the news.
