Poonam Pandey Hit with Rs 100 Cr Defamation Lawsuit

Poonam Pandey and her former husband, Sam Bombay, are facing a Rs 100 crore defamation lawsuit filed by Faizan Ansari

after the actress faked her death, which has sparked outrage among fans and industry insiders alike.

 Ansari accused Poonam of "trivialising the seriousness of cancer and manipulating the emotions and trust of millions" with her ill-conceived hoax.

The legal action not only demands financial compensation but also urges authorities to take punitive measures, including their arrest.

 An FIR was lodged with the Kanpur Police Commissioner, alleging a conspiracy orchestrated by Poonam and Sam.

The saga began when Poonam's official Instagram account posted an announcement of her demise due to cervical cancer on February 2.

This move drew sharp criticism from various quarters, with prominent figures like Kangana Ranaut and Karan Kundrra condemning Poonam's actions.

The entertainment fraternity stands divided, with many expressing disdain for Poonam's actions.
