Chandigarh, August 6

A Chandigarh court has issued notice to Miss Universe Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu in a case filed by actress Upasana Singh. The court of Civil Judge Junior Division has directed Harnaaz Kaur to file her reply by September 7, 2022. Upasana Singh is known for playing the character of ‘Bua’ in ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.

Upasana Singh had filed a civil suit on August 4, claiming damages of Rs 1 crore from Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu for allegedly breaching a contract and non-performance of her obligations in terms of agreement between them.

Upasana Singh said she signed Harnaaz Sandhu as a lead artist under her banner Santosh Entertainment Studio LLP in the year 2020 in a Punjabi feature film “Bai Ji Kuttange.”

Upasana claimed that through an agreement signed on December 13, 2020, it was specifically agreed between both the parties that the artist will make herself available throughout the promotional activities of the film both by being present in-person during the events as well as virtually.

Upasana alleged that soon after Harnaaz was crowned Miss Universe 2021 and gained world recognition, her behaviour changed. She alleged that Harnaaz Sandhu evaded all her professional and contractual commitments by completely ignoring all the communications made to her by the production house as well as all other concerned stakeholders. She did not even answer a single message or any of the e-mails sent to her.

As a result of such a behaviour on the part of the Miss Universe, the film lost its distributors, its release date was compromised and ultimately, the release date was postponed from May 27, 2022 to August 19, 2022.

Upasana Singh claimed that they are incurring huge losses financially, due to her behaviour. Upasana said that she has already performed her part of the contract by paying the whole fees amount of Rs 1 lakh to the defendant as per the agreement.
