Nivetha Pethuraj who made her Telugu debut with ‘Mental Madhilo’ starring Sree Vishnu, directed by Vivek Athreya and produced by Raj Kandukuri, is deeply hurt by a section of media for posting bikini pics of a model Varshini Pakal and project her as Oru Naal Koothu girl on the social media. The netizens thought it was Nivetha Pethuraj. The model has an uncanny resemblance to Nivetha Pethuraj.
Nivetha Pethuraj posted on the wall of Twitter, “For the past few days some section of the media were constantly using the images of some aspiring artiste and had been using my name, thus creating an impression that it was me who is seen in that picture. This was brought to my notice by many calls from well-wishers and friends. This deliberate attempt to malign my image has hurt me very badly. I’m in touch with my legal team to handle this issue. Considering the huge respect I have for the media, I had been maintaining a dignified silence. But it looks that there is no respite from this irresponsible act. May I request them to verify and carry the news and images of the concerned artiste. After all, we are also human beings and we have a family too. We too live in a society which has bearings in our day to day life. I hope this will put things in a straight line. Any further repeated acts according to my legal counsel will invite legal proceedings.”
On the work side, Nivetha Pethuraj is currently busy in her upcoming movies Jagajala Killadi and Party, which are in different production stages.
Nivetha Pethuraju is also waiting for the release of Jayam Ravi starrer Tik Tik Tik.
