Kanika Dhillon warns Bollywood website of legal action for putting out a 'defaming article', publication removes the piece


Writer Kanika Dhillon called out a Bollywood news website for putting out a 'defaming and irresponsible' article about her. A news portal filed a story of how Kanika Dhillon has been replaced by Abhijat Joshi for Rajkumar Hirani's film with Shah Rukh Khan. However, the news was untrue and hence, Kanika clarified the same on Twitter. 

The news website's quote read, “Kanika Dhillon and Rajkumar Hirani were trying to crack the script for a while, however, things didn’t work out and eventually, Hirani’s frequent collaborator, Abhijat Joshi took the responsibility of writing. He has masterfully crafted the screenplay of the immigration story over the last one year and things are officially locked now."

Soon, the website cooperated and removed the article. Kanika appreciated their quick response and tweeted, "Thank u for Showing grace and way forward to good journalism and healthy respectful media reporting.. really appreciate the quick response…@BOWorldwid"
