Mumbai, Nov 13 (IANS) Model-turned-actress Sushmita Sen seems to be courting rumours - first, she was dealing with false reports on her marriage and now about missing a shoot for a shampoo ad.
"What do I do with false stories about me? Let them spoil my day? No way! I leave the rumour mongers to deal with their own conscience. That's how well the media knows me," Sushmita told IANS.
Sushmita says she no longer endorses the product whose ad shoot she's supposed to have ditched.
"I'd never default on my work. And party while work waited?...This is toooooo outrageous to be funny. I had no contractual obligation. My contract with the product ended in July. In fact, the last shoot for the product took place in July.
"The best part is I don't endorse that product any longer. My deal with them ended long back. So which Sushmita Sen were they supposed to be waiting for? But then this is small compared with marriage plans that are made for me every month."
"I couldn't allow my life to be spoilt by such absurd reports. First, they say I couldn't attend the shoot for the ad because I was partying the previous night. Then they say the people who were supposed to shoot the ad kept trying to reach me. Anyone who knows me would know I never switch off my cell. And why would they try to get in touch with me? Wouldn't getting to me via my manager be much easier?
The actress is currently busy with her home production "Rani Laxmibai" in which she will play the title role.
