British singer-actor Sofia Hayat created a stir last week by filing a police complaint against actor Armaan Kohli, alleging that Kohli, her co-contestant on the TV show Bigg Boss, hit her during a task.

Now, Armaan’s father, filmmaker Rajkumar Kohli has slapped a defamation case against Hayat, stating that she has been trying to tarnish the image of his son for publicity.

Kohli on Friday sent out a statement: "Since the past few days, ever since her eviction from the Bigg Boss house, Sofia Hayat has been trying her level best to gain cheap publicity by continuously maligning Armaan`s name in various sections of the media... These comments made by Sofia are causing irreparable damage. To put an end to Sofia Hayat’s publicity-gaining tactics, we have got in touch with our legal team and are in the process of filing a defamation suit against her."
