Kushboo seems to have got into trouble once again. An AIADMK activist filed a defamation complaint against her for commenting on the election results saying that it is the people’s defeat and they are going to suffer for the next five years with the state going to be ruled by J Jayalalitha.
The actress was seriously campaigning for the DMK and during the recent election campaign. Kushboo’s election campaign was also highly publicized as she still enjoys the star status.
She had given an interview to a Tamil daily, published on May 15 following the massive victory of AIADMK in the assembly elections, stating that the people of Tamil Nadu, ‘have lost and they are going to suffer for the next five years.’
V Pugazhendi, the State Secretary of the AIADMK in Karnataka, has filed a petition in the Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Egmore to punish Kushboo under Section 500 of the IPC for issuing a statement, which was allegedly defamatory.
In his complaint on Thursday, Pugazhendhi submitted that himself, other cadres of the AIADMK party were humiliated and defamed by her statement. He contended that Kushboo who could not digest the massive mandate of the people and the landslide victory of the AIADMK, had nurtured an ill will and with an ulterior motive, issued a defamatory statement and intentionally blamed the people by issuing the statement, after the election results were published. He sought to punish her for an offence under Section 500 of the IPC. The matter will come up in court on June 16.
Well!!Kushboo would have now one more case to the already pending two against her, to shuttle between courts.
