Director of ‘Kamasutra 3D’, Rupesh Paul has sent his leading actress, Sherlyn Chopra a legal notice after her recent abusive messages on Twitter. Paul also claims defamation damages of Rs 5 crores from the actress.
“I had to do this to preserve my self-respect. Sherlyn who called me Appa suddenly became hostile. She withdrew all support to our film and abused me in the filthiest language. I had to take legal action to protect my film and my reputation,” says Rupesh.
Bollywood Hungama reports that Chopra not only announced her decision to dissociate herself from her much-vaunted film ‘Kamasutra 3D’, she also tweeted highly abusive statements about her director Rupesh Paul calling him a ‘ga***u’ and a ‘ha****i’.
Rupesh says they shared a father-daughter relationship. “She called me Appa, which means ‘father’ in Tamil and Telugu. Now on twitter she has been calling me a ‘ha****i’ and a ‘ga***u’. Being a South Indian I didn’t know what these words meant. I had to ask my assistant.”
‘Kamasutra 3D’ is set to premiere at Cannes on 23rd May.
