Just one film old, Sidharth Malhotra recently became a victim of duping as a fan club was selling merchandise under his name without his permission.
The owners of the website, who pose to be huge fans of the actor, were misusing his name in order to earn big bucks by bluffing to fellow fans and hence, the actor decided to take legal action against them. Spokesperson of Sidharth said, "There are over 31 Sidharth Malhotra Fan Clubs online and they're genuine Fan Clubs. The reason a legal notice was sent to the fake website is because it was a pirate and selling merchandise without permission."
Due to this, the actor was forced to send a legal notice to the website owners to immediately stop selling merchandise on his name.
