The legal notice was sent by lawyer Rakesh K. Singh, founder, RKS Associates, on behalf of the jewellery brand which has not been named. They have accused Hina of sourcing jewellery to wear for an awards event here, but not returning the items, including two pairs of earrings, one ring and one set, in entirety.

When Hina came across the news, Hina tweeted: “LOL. Wonder why this legal notice did not reach my house and instead reached all the media houses. Sorry haters this tactic will not work… Try something new.”

However, Singh insists the letter was sent.

“Notice has been sent to Hina Khan by way of registered post A.D. by my office. The same was sent on July 17, 2018. As far as jewellery pieces are concerned, she herself received the same on April 21, 2018. She knows that she has returned only two pieces of jewellery out of six. So she should know when and where to stop acting,” Singh said in a statement.

Hina is meanwhile concentrating on “Bhasoodi”, her first music video.

“‘Bhasoodi’ will still shine,” she wrote on Twitter in continuation of her earlier post.

The actress is marking her comeback with the 22-minute film in which she plays the role of a chef.

“It took almost three hours for me to get the look right. Thanks to my director Ram Kamal who was very particular about every details,” Esha said.

She has been styled by Kareen Punjwani for this look. The heavy gold embroidered Benarasi saree was sourced for just one shot in the film, whose poster has been designed by the city-based Ekta Bhattacharya.

Of the poster, Mukherjee said: “It tells a lot about the film. I wanted a dichotomy that would create that characteristic rift. Esha is a gifted actor and she is natural. That’s what makes her look so convincing as Shilpa Sen.”

The ‘shanka’ and ‘pola’ (red and white bangles) that a Bengali woman wears as a sign of being a married woman, were ordered from Kalighat temple here, and the gold jewellery adorned by Esha was also designed by a store in Kolkata.
