Mumbai: Controversies and Hina Khan go hand in hand. Former Bigg Boss 11 contestant Hina Khan has responded to the reports that she has not returned jewellery worth Rs 11 lakh that was loaned to her for an award function. Earlier, the jeweller had sent a legal notice to the Hina for failing to return ornaments that she wore to Dadasahib Phalke awards in April. The jeweller had said in the legal notice, that the jewellery was worth Rs 11.11 lakh and Hina never returned it.
The legal notice was sent by lawyer Rakesh K Singh, founder, RKS Associates, on behalf of the jewellery brand which has not been named.
When the jeweller reached out to Hina, she said that her stylist has lost the jewellery. The legal notice said that when they persisted, Hina issued threats. In the notice, the jeweller has asked Hina to return the jewellery, pay Rs 2 lakh towards compensation for loss of business and harassment and tender a written apology.
Hina, who had earlier dismissed the legal notice as a hate tactic on her Twitter account, has responded to the legal notice. In an interview, she said, “Firstly I didn’t wear their jewellery as I didn’t like them and opted for another one. My stylist Hemlata’s assistants misplaced it in auto rickshaw. She is trying hard to return it and she has already paid about Rs 2.86 lakh. Media houses are discussing legal notice which has reached to them unfortunately and not me. I just want to say, show me the signatures of receiving on it. But definitely this incident has defamed me, so, my lawyers are looking into it. They don’t know what is going to happen to them. They are definitely going to receive a legal notice from me. I will make sure they apologise.”
Hina, who recently came out with her music video Bhasoodi, had earlier dismissed the reports of legal notice on Twitter.
