Hrudaya Kaleyam filmmaker Sai Rajesh who is also known as Steven Shankar has now taken an extreme step of filing a defamation case against one of the top Telugu websites. The director was upset with an article published on their site. Though the article did not carry his name, it hinted about the director only and the filmmaker immediately approached the court and filed a defamation suit.
Taking to Twitter, he posted that he served the legal notices to the website as well as the chief editor of the site. “Demanding Immediate removal of the defamatory Article from their site and to tender an Unconditional Apologand Damages of Rs. 2CRORE and also to refrain from posting defamatory articles against me.
