Actress Raveena Tandon was recently involved in a road rage incident in Bandra, Mumbai, where a man claimed that her driver hit his mother and the actor assaulted her in a drunken state; however, days later, she was given a clean chit by the police.

The viral video from Mumbai's Bandra was shared on social media by a user claiming to be a freelance journalist on June 2. In a new report by Hindustan Times, the actress sent a defamation notice to the journalist who posted the video on X. She has sought Rs 100 crore in damages from the man, Mohsin Shaikh, who describes himself as a social activist and freelance reporter. As per the notice, he “defamed the actor without any proof”.

Lawyer Sana Raees Khan, who is representing Raveena, said, "Recently, an attempt was made to embroil Raveena in a false and frivolous allegation, which was clarified in CCTV footage and the allegation was withdrawn. However, a person, claiming to be a journalist is disseminating false information on X regarding the said incident, which is factually incorrect and misleading."

"This dissemination of false news appears to be a deliberate attempt to tarnish Raveena’s reputation for ulterior motives. We are currently taking all necessary legal steps to address this issue and ensure that justice is served. We stand in solidarity with Raveena and support her right to seek redressal for the harm caused by these unfounded allegations," added the report.

The video of the incident was shared first by freelance reporter Mohsin Shaikh on X.
