It looks like Bigg Boss contestant, Karishma Tanna has run into trouble with a Delhi-based event management company. The actor has been accused of fraud by the event manager, Manas Katyal after he accused her of “cheating, threatening and blackmailing” him.

According to a report in Mid-day, Karishma was supposed to perform at a wedding reception in Haldwani but did not make it for the function, costing him a loss of nearly Rs 10 lakh.

“We gave her the advance payment, thus booking her for the said date. However, Karishma and her entourage, including her manager Payal Rai and stylist Seema Samar Ahmed, didn’t show up at the venue. Her no-show caused us a loss of nearly Rs 10 lakh”.

According to the report, Katyal said that he had flown Tanna’s full team from Delhi and took them to Haldwani by road, when half way, she asked the driver to turn the car around.

“She threatened our driver with a false case of harassment if he didn’t turn the car around and drive her back to Delhi.”

Karishma has, in turn, accused Katyal of “mental harassment”.

“I was told the show was in Moradabad. When we reached Moradabad, we found out that the show was actually in Haldwani, which is another few hours from there. I had told Manas right at the start that I have a back issue and can’t travel long distances.”

"Why should I return the money? He should compensate me for the mental harassment that I was put through," said Tanna to Mid-day.

According to reports, Tanna's lawyer Tushar Gujjar has responded to Katyal’s notice.
