Ace Malayalam actor Dulqar Salman has given many hit films and recently produced, acted in a Malayalam-language comedy-drama film ‘Varane Avashyamund’ that was written and directed by Anoop Sathyan.
Months after its release, woman.a journalist Chetna Kapoor accused Dulqar Salman and the makers of the movie of using her pictures in the film without her consent. Apparently, her pictures appear twice on a poster of a weight loss clinic in the movie.She further added that although legal action will follow, she’d like them to release a public apology.
Salmaan was quick to take note and said that they take full responsibility for the error. Chetna urged them to either delete the scenes with her pictures or blur the images. However later following a meeting with the director, she said that she’s willing to put this matter behind her.
It is indeed irresponsible to breach someone’s privacy and use their images without consent. However, their efforts to reach out to her and apologise for their mistakes are commendable.
