There were reports of Bipasha being harassed by the hotel management in Delhi, an allegation that the hotel’s chairman, Ashok Mittal, promptly denied. And now, the miffed hotelier has sent legal notices to Bipasha Basu, Shemaroo Entertainment and also the PR Company handling the event in Delhi, Add-on Entertainment
According to the notice, when Bipasha and Shemaroo’s representatives demanded an extra Rs 30 lakh at the last minute to have Bipasha make an appearance at the party, was when the deal began to fall apart, “as the Company had by this time already spent as much as about Rs 45 lakh towards the various arrangements,” says the document. The notice also accuses the other party of “attempted extortion threat”. Mittal has asked for damages “to the tune of Rs 5 crores” as “damages towards the loss of reputation, goodwill and standing”.
