This seems to be a case of the case that just won't go away, at least not as far as Shilpa Shetty is concerned. Reports have once more appeared claiming that the actress has been summoned in an obscenity case regarding photos used in a South Indian magazine. Reacting to reports about Shetty being served legal summons and a non-bailable warrant in the 'obscenity case' filed against her by an advocate in Madurai, the actress' publicist and spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar has clarified that though a case has been filed, Shilpa has not received any summons.
"Shilpa has been in and out of the country. When in Mumbai, she is busy shooting for Anil Sharma's Apne. It seems the advocate in Madurai is having a gala time using her name in the media to milk publicity for himself in his hometown," says Bhagwagar.
"It's a frivolous case and is targeted at hassling her. Shilpa's legal team is working on it," he adds.
Bhagwagar also said that Shetty has not posed for the photograph in question, which is in fact a freeze-frame shot from her recent Kannada film Auto Shankar. The makers used a clip from the censored version of the movie for promotion purposes on publici ty hoardings. The published image was lifted from there and printed by Tamil eveninger Tamil Murasu.
