It’s been several days since the beach pictures of Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor hit the Internet – and newsstands – but Katrina has only just issued a statement to the media regarding this.
Here’s her letter, as per TOI:
I am writing this to say that I feel most upset, distressed and invaded at my pictures published in a film magazine (and which were carried by other media). The pictures were taken while I was on holiday by someone who, in an act of cowardice, has shot without permission and then used the pictures for commercial gain.
There is a breed of journalism that preys on celebrities in the worst possible manner crossing all lines of privacy and decency. Running these pictures shows support for this school of journalism.
I request that all media running these pictures please refrain from doing so. I have a wonderful relationship with the media and have been accessible to the media at all times. There is no reason for this furtive and invasive behaviour.
Like we told you, she wasn’t happy about the way the pictures were taken, but she saw the silver lining and was alright with the message it sent out. She hasn’t specifically commented about Ranbir, though, and he has yet to say anything about the situation himself… I suppose we’ll have to see, once he gets back from Sri Lanka.
