Now, responding to this document, Vanitha , in her counter notice, demanded Rs. 2.5 crores from Lakshmy Ramakrishnan for spoiling her reputation. Vanitha’s lawyer, in the document stated that Vanitha denied all the allegations of Lakshmy Ramakrishnan against her. The document suggests that there was no marriage conducted between Peter Paul and Vanitha Vijayakumar and the actress never published the pictures officially in any kind of social media platform. Therefore, Sridhar said that Lakshmy cannot interfere in anything that is published in social media and conclude a statement against his client.
The document also said that Lakshmy Ramakrishnan is the first person to trigger the false information on social media against Vanitha without verifying the facts. “She had blindly made an open comment on social media tarnishing the image of my client in public life” the statement said. The document said that Lakshmy Ramakrishnan is not a guardian of society on Tamil culture. Sridhar also says that Vanitha denied the alleged collusion of her with Behindwoods youtube channel.
It also said that Vanitha was merely defending herself in that controversial interaction and was reacting to what was done by Lakshmy Ramakrishnan in an earlier interview. Through the 16 points, Vanitha denied all the allegations and refused to pay the Rs.1.25 crores demanded by Lakshmy Ramakrishnan. Instead, Vanitha through her lawyer, claimed Rs. 2.50 crores for the huge loss caused by Lakshmy Ramakrishnan. She said that her shows got cancelled and a huge loss of reputation occurred after Lakshmy Ramakrishnan interfered in Vanitha’s personal life and spoiled her reputation by giving false allegations in public. The document also said Vanitha will seek apology only if Lakshmy come forward and apologise publicly in the media.
