Kareena, Shahid to sue newspaper over 'kissing' photos
Popular film actress Kareena Kapoor and her actor boyfriend Shahid Kapur Wednesday threatened to take a newspaper here to court for publishing photos that purportedly showed them kissing.
The leading afternoon newspaper Mid-Day carried photographs of the couple, prompting Kareena and Shahid to threaten to slap a defamation suit on its publishers.
Kareena claimed the photographs were fake and that she was emotionally distraught.
"I am completely emotionally and mentally traumatised by what has taken place. It is really terrible that a leading newspaper could do this. My lawyer will be taking legal steps," she told a TV channel.
Kareena said the newspaper had claimed the video from which the photographs were derived had been shot while she was in a restaurant, but she was in fact shooting at the time at Ooty in Tamil Nadu.
Shahid Kapur wondered what was the need to resort to such a stunt when they had announced they were in a relationship and were a couple.
While Kareena was reported to have claimed Rs.200 million as damages from the newspaper, Shahid sent a separate legal notice but the amount claimed by him was not immediately known.
