Lata Mangeshkar

It seems that someone called Sunil Chohan has been claiming to be Lata Mangeshkar's secretary by showing a picture of himself with the singing legend.

The person has been telling people that she is performing in Holland.

Lata clarified, 'Namaskar. I am very shocked and upset to learn that a person, who goes by the name of 'Sunil Chohan', has been misrepresenting to people that he is my secretary. This is wholly untrue. Furthermore, he has been taking money from people, falsely telling them that I am doing some concert for/through him. This too is wholly untrue. I am not doing any such concert, and, nor have I even a remote inkling of who this person is. He has also committed a very serious offence by making a fabricated and false photo, showing him seated next to me. This is a fake photo. He shows this photo to people and takes monies from them. I am taking the necessary legal action, yet at the same time, I would like to warn all the people through Twitter, that the abovesaid person is a fraud, and his activities of falsely using my name are fraudulent!'

She also posted the
picture in question.
