Bhubaneswar: Actress Prakruti Mishra lodged a complaint with Mancheswar police against web portal ‘News Odiya One’ on Wednesday evening alleging cyber bullying.
In her complaint, the National Film Award winner stated that with an intention to malign her image, the web channel posted unethical reports concerning her.
“This sort of deliberate and intentional insult against me and my family is going to have an adverse effect on my career. Due to such derogatory act by a section of unscrupulous people, we are receiving phone calls and being harassed by people. This has also put my parents under enormous psychological stress,” she stated in the FIR.
Prakruti, who was recently seen in MTV reality show ‘Ace of Space 2’ and played the lead role in Hindi daily soap ‘Bitti Business Wali’, said, “being a professional actor, endorsement and collaboration with brand is part of my work portfolio. It is unlawful on the part of the local news portal to circulate wrongful and misleading information about me or my family. This propaganda of defamation and harassment is a threat to my hard-earned reputation and most importantly my mental health.”
The actress sought action against the channel.
