“Adjourned…beyond vacation,” said Justice Naresh Patil, who was sitting in a division bench, when the matter was called out before the court. The petitioner was not present.

Pooja contended in her petition that she was a popular contestant of TV show “Big Boss 5”, and Sunny had entered the show much later.

She alleged that Sunny had given defamatory interviews in a section of the media, and this was done out of “malice and jealousy” towards her.

Pooja also alleged that Sunny had attributed motives against her in an impugned article in a city newspaper and said her reputation had been damaged in public eye, because of which she had to break her fixed deposits and withdraw her savings, thereby suffering losses to the tune of Rs 70 lakhs.
