- Urvashi Rautela alleged that her former PR was a drug addict
- "Sad how cheap people go in assassinating people's character," she wrote
- "Have enjoyed an impeccable reputation after years of hardwork," she said
Actress Urvashi Rautela posted a somewhat baffling statement on her social media on Wednesday upbraiding the media for making her former PR manager - whom she accused of character assassination - legit. Urvashi did not reveal which media reports had so incensed her nor could we find any recent reports that looked like they could be based on damaging allegations made by a disgruntled former employee - unless she means the stories carried by several news outlets on the actress being trolled for a picture of herself hugging a wax statue of cricketer Virat Kohli.
In her statement, Urvashi Rautela also alleged that her former PR was a drug addict who had been jailed for blackmailing her. Urvashi's statement reads: "It's really catastrophic that media has given integrity to my (ex-PR for 5 years) cocaine-alcohol addict, who was in jail because of blackmailing me, without checking the record who the person is. It's really sad how cheap people go in assassinating people's character when you discontinue the service. I have enjoyed an impeccable reputation after years of hardwork and efforts."
