Incumbent Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu has found herself in legal trouble over alleged breach of contract.
Reportedly, Sandhu will soon be starring in Punjabi film Bai Ji Kuttange produced by famous actress Upasana Singh from Kapil Sharma Show.
Sandhu had reportedly signed an agreement with Singh to promote the film, however she allegedly refused to give dates for the film’s promotion.
Upasana Singh then filed a civil lawsuit in Chandigarh District Court on Thursday, seeking damages for Harnaaz Sandhu’s alleged breach of contract.
“I gave Harnaaz the chance to act in the movie ‘Bai ji Kuttange’. Not only that, but I also filmed ‘Yaara Diyan Poo Baran’ in which Harnaaz is also the heroine,” Upasana said outside the court.
Harnaaz had to make herself available to promote the film in person and virtually as part of the agreement with her Santosh Entertainment Studio LLP.
“I gave Harnaaz a chance when she wasn’t Miss Universe. I spent a huge amount of money on this film. It’s not a budget film,” Upasana added.
However, there has not yet been any comment from Harnaaz or her team on the matter.
Directed by Smeep Kang, Bai Ji Kuttange is slated to hit theaters August 19. It also stars Dev Kharoud and Gurpreet Ghuggi.
