In an interaction with a media portal, the singer refuted all these claims and said, “That woman has lost her mental balance. There is nothing at all. It is just like that tomorrow any woman will get up and accuse you that she is your wife or daughter. What should be done”
She then added that she cannot say anything about legal action as she does not know anything about the legal complexities.
“I never dealt with such a situation before. I would like to know on what basis the court accepted the case,” she concluded.
