Sidharth Malhotra, the ‘Student Of The Year’ star recently sent a legal notice to a fake fan club which was selling merchandise under his name without the actor’s permission.
The owners of this fake website who boasts to be huge fans of the actor were misusing Sidharth’s name to earn huge amount of money by fooling his fans. The actor was left with no choice but to take legal action against them. Sidharth Malhotra’s spokeperson said, “There are over 31 Sidharth Malhotra Fan Clubs online and they’re genuine Fan Clubs. The reason a legal notice was sent to the fake website is because it was a pirate and selling merchandise without permission.”
The actor being a polite guy took a courteous approach towards this. But, the matter got worse eventually when companies started getting in touch with Sidharth. They informed him about some fans who are accosting them on behalf of the actor. Someone from the actor’s team ordered for a T-shirt to check the activities and responsiveness of this fake fan club which was acceded by the owners.
Sidharth was forced to send a legal notice to the fake website owners to stop selling merchandise on his name.
