Earlier today we came across the news that an FIR has been filed against Sonakshi Sinha and four others for not performing at an event in New Delhi even after accepting payment. As per the complaint, Sonakshi was supposed to perform at an event in New Delhi on 30 September 2018 and she even accepted Rs 37 lakh as payment. But she failed to turn up at the last moment. Now, Sonakshi’s team has opened up on the issue on her behalf.

Complainant Pramod Sharma, who is an owner of a Moradabad-based company India Fashion and Beauty Award, told ANI that his company had incurred losses. He also said that he paid extra Rs. 9 lakhs on Sonakshi’s accommodation and travel.

He further said, “I tried convincing her a lot to perform at the event and even told her that I will incur huge losses if she doesn’t come, but she refused to perform.”

Sonakshi’s team has now released an official statement which reads, “Sonakshi was approached by the event organizers in Delhi to attend an event. However, despite repeated reminders, the organizer failed to make the payments to Sonakshi before the event as contracted. The tickets to Delhi were not in order/as were agreed, the organiser also didn’t send return tickets for Sonakshi and her team, despite knowing that she had a shoot the next morning after the event. This put everyone in a tough spot. Several attempts were made to contact the organiser requesting hum to make the contracted payments and send the tickets, however, they remained incommunicado and didn’t live up to their end of the bargain. Due to a lack of commitment by the organiser, Sonakshi and her team were left with no choice but to return home from Mumbai airport. Ever since that day, Sonakshi’s management agency has been trying to reach out to the organiser to find an amicable solution to the extent of offering an alternate date and tried to connect but to no avail. The organizer is now using the media to release false and manipulated facts. If the organiser doesn’t stop at this, Sonakshi and her team will be forced to take a legal course of action to set this straight. We request media to not let anyone use their platform without looking into the facts.”
