Later, another lady was roped to complete the movie, then how could they use my images for the film’s marketing without my permission? This is condemnable. I request Movie Artists Association (MAA) to take action against the producers and the debut director and also the whole team involved in filmmaking. In addition to that, compensation is needed for this unapproved activity”.
