Mumbai: A 37-year-old actress residing in Versova, Andheri West, has taken legal action after her morphed photos were allegedly shared on her friend's social media handles and sent to her parents. The actress suspects a male friend to be behind this malicious act. Following this, she filed a complaint at the Versova police station and a case has been registered.

The incident unfolded on December 27, 2023, when the actress, while at a cafe shop in Oshiwara, received a call from a male friend who had received her morphed nude photos and messages on Facebook. The account responsible was allegedly linked to a certain Kuldeep Dwivedi. The actress requested screenshots, which were promptly provided, but due to work commitments, she delayed filing a case.
