TV Actress, Karishma Tanna, is back in the news for all the wrong reasons. A while back, we read about her infamous split with Upen Patel who publicly accused her of ‘using’ him. Upen wrote a string of heartbroken messages on Twitter where he deeply regretted his relationship with her. On the other side, Karishma chose to maintain silence over Upen’s outburst.
Now, after her personal trouble, she is facing a legal upheaval. According to the Mid-day report, an event manager, Manas Katyal, has slapped a legal notice accusing her of cheating, threatening and blackmailing him.
The actress was booked to perform at a wedding reception in Haldwani, Uttarakhand on February 16, but according to the Katyal, she didn’t turn up at the venue despite being paid in advance which caused him a loss of nearly Rs 10 lakhs.

“We gave her the advance payment, thus booking her for the said date. However, Karishma and her entourage, including her manager Payal Rai and stylist Seema Samar Ahmed, didn’t show up at the venue. Her no-show caused us a loss of nearly Rs 10 lakh.”
He further said that Karishma had been flown down to Delhi by them and was being brought to Haldwani by road, when suddenly she decided to go back.
“She threatened our driver with a false case of harassment if he didn’t turn the car around and drive her back to Delhi.”
The actress retaliated by saying that she was misled by event management team. She clarified:
“I was told the show was in Moradabad. When we reached Moradabad, we found out that the show was actually in Haldwani, which is another few hours from there. I had told Manas right at the start that I have a back issue and can’t travel long distances. Why should I return the money? He should compensate me for the mental harassment that I was put through.”
Karishma has responded to Katyal’s legal notice, and only time will tell us whether he will get his money back or not. Do you have anything to say on this? Tell us in comments.
