Recently certain individuals have been posing to be music label T-Series‘ head honcho Bhushan Kumar and duping a lot of people. The music label learnt of three different individuals who were posing as Bhushan Kumar and contacting aspiring actors and artistes while asking for money in return. These fraudsters have been misusing the music mogul’s name even on WhatsApp and one of them even went to the extent that they’ve used his name for True Caller as well. T-series learnt of this from industry colleagues and have immediately taken strict action against it by filing a criminal complaint against these unidentified individuals at Amboli Police Station.
One of the fraudsters claiming to be a part of T-Series was approaching aspiring actors to audition for their home production Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and demanded money for the same. Another imposter tried to hire models for a music video and the third imposter offered work to hair and makeup artists for a music video with two prominent singers in Goa.
A spokesperson of T-Series said:
The intention of such unknown persons seems very clearly to illegally ride upon the name and reputation of Mr.Bhushan Kumar and/or T-Series and in doing so they are not only taking undue advantage of gullible aspiring actors / artists but are also maligning the reputation of T-Series and our Managing Director Mr.Bhushan Kumar in the industry.
The spokesperson further added that T-Series does not approach any actor or artist and demand any compensation in return.
“Neither Mr.Bhushan Kumar nor T-Series as an organization ever approaches any aspiring actor / model / artists and demand any kind of compensation or registration money for auditions. We would request all upcoming talent or anyone involved in the entertainment industry to not fall prey to such fraudsters. We work with registered and reputed casting agencies only who are easily verifiable. We take such acts of impersonation and intent of maligning our reputation very seriously and in addition to already filed police complaints, we may also approach the courts to claim heavy damages from the culprits as may be advised by our legal team.
We hope the imposters are found and strict actions be taken against them.
