Our favourite leggy lass, Karishma Tanna has unfortunately been accused of fraud by a Delhi-based event manager, Manas Katyal (previously a TV actor who appeared in Rakhi Ka Sawayamvar). He has reportedly sent a legal notice to Karishma for cheating, threatening and blackmailing him.

Manas claims that she had been roped in to perform at a wedding reception in Haldwani on February 16, and was also paid in advance. However, nobody showed up at the venue on the given date, due to which he had to suffer losses worth Rs. 10 Lakhs. As per a report in Mid-day, he said that Karishma was being driven to Haldwani from Delhi when she changed her mind about coming.

He said:

She threatened our driver with a false case of harassment if he didn’t turn the car around and drive her back to Delhi.

On the other hand, Karishma said that she was informed that the wedding is in Moradabad:

I was told the show was in Moradabad. When we reached Moradabad, we found out that the show was actually in Haldwani, which is another few hours from there. I had told Manas right at the start that I have a back issue and can’t travel long distances.

She also refused to compensate for Manas’ losses as she also suffered enough:

Why should I return the money? He should compensate me for the mental harassment that I was put through.

Uh-oh. This is a messy situation.
