Following allegations against actor Bhaama that she backed off from an inauguration programme because of not getting the promised remuneration, the actor, in her defense, took to social media on Sunday.

Bhaama, the popular Malayalam actor, termed the rumor that she declined to fulfill her commitment because of the said amount not being paid to her as “fake news.” In a status update on Facebook, she revealed the profile of one Sreejith Rajamani, who introduced himself as the Managing Director of Unique Models and Celebrity Management and invited her for the function.

“According to the terms I was supposed to be paid Rs. 2.5 lakhs for inaugurating the shop. Out of this an amount of Rs. 1 lakh was promised as advance. The rest of the amount was promised to be handed over in cash before the inaugural function. But only an amount of Rs 15000 came to my account as advance. But as a professional, I deemed it as my duty to attend the function and I expected that the promised amount would be handed over when I reach the premises for the function,” she wrote.

However, according to the status update, neither was Sreejith present at the venue, nor was he available over phone.

“To add to my woes those who organized the function told me that Sreejith Rajamani had already borrowed an amount of Rs. 50000/- towards my remuneration. I was startled to learn that this person had misled the organizers by saying that I demanded only Rs. 1 lakh for the function,” she continued to write in her post. She termed the whole incident as “an act of double crossing”, and said that she was “blatantly cheated”.

Cautioning her colleagues in the industry of such nefarious acts, she wrote that she has sought legal aid to sort out the issue.
