Sidharth Malhotra takes legal action against his fan club

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."

The actor initially took a polite approach towards this and had requested his fans not to use this site for commercial gain. But, the matter aggravated further when companies started getting in touch with the actor, informing him about some fans who are approaching them on behalf of the actor. In order to check the functioning and responsiveness of this fake portal, someone from the actor's team placed an order for a T-shirt which was acknowledged by the owners.

Due to this, the actor was forced to send a legal notice to the website owners to immediately stop selling merchandise on his name.
