The actress who wanted legal action to be taken against her defamers was asked to seek an apology from them instead. The court had cited that the celebrities share personal details and then file defamation cases, which was not the right thing.

Not ready to take it, Samantha had to bring her advocate in her defence. It is reported that Samantha’s attorney has cited the recent ‘permanent injunction order’ case filed by Shilpa Shetty as the reference point to Samantha’s case now.

After her husband Raj Kundra was arrested in a pornography case, Shilpa Shetty had approached the Bombay High Court. The court passed the permanent injunction order, restricting media outlets from reporting derogatory reports pertaining to her.

Samantha’s legal team indicated that she could approach the court for a similar verdict in her defamation case as well. The court has now reserved the judgment on Samantha’s defamation case and will be heard soon.

Samantha’s divorce announcement came as a shocker to all, after which multiple websites and YouTube channels started speculation related to her personal life and spreading rumours about the actress having affairs with her colleagues.

Richa said, “Zarina is an interesting character and although I am nothing like her in real life, I get how she became the way she did. I am just the polar opposite of Zarina’s character, and this is one of the reasons I have thoroughly enjoyed playing the role immensely. The love for power, fame, money, comes alive in her character and is so real. I am excited about the third season and look forward to audience reviews because I feel Zarina, who has been wronged in so many ways since Season 1, will claw her way back to the person she once was.”

The first two seasons have garnered appreciation from the audience. Season three is in the works and will soon be released on Amazon Prime. (IANS)
