Recently, event manager R.Shiyas alleged that Sunny Leone has taken Rs 29 Lakhs promising him to attend different functions which she did not turn up for.
Now, Sunny has reacted to the same allegations saying they’re ‘deeply hurtful’.
Sourced from a Spotboye report, Sunny has reacted to the scandal saying, “As an artiste, work is worship for me. I was nothing but gracious, understanding even moving my schedule multiple times over the organisers. But they wouldn’t commit to a set date. It is customary that to lock an actor’s time, an advance has to be paid upfront, which wasn’t done till the nth hour.”
“Due to a lack of timely payment from their end coupled with the fact that they dilly dallied on finalising the date, I bowed out. I have other commitments in Poovar,” she continued.
Sunny also mentioned how such ‘slanderous claims’ by the event co-ordinators are deeply hurtful and unsolicited. “I have already given the statement to the investigating officers and they are investigating the co-ordinators as well. Let law take its course.”
Apparently, a source said that the event was often getting rescheduled and that the dates were clashing with her other commitments. The source also said that the fees weren’t fully paid and that Rs 12.5 lakh were yet to be cleared. According to the agreement, this sum of Rs 12.5 lakh was to be paid 7 days prior to the event.
