Thanks to ex-lover Kushal Tandon, Gauhar Khan may be in legal trouble

Model-actress Gauhar Khan may be in trouble, all thanks to her ex-boyfriend Kushal Tandon. The duo fell in love during their stint in ‘Bigg Boss 7’, but their relationship was short-lived and the couple broke-up on a bitter note. However, they later buried the hatchet and decided to continue being friends.

Recently, Gauhar shared a sizzling picture of hers on Instagram from photoshoot for the popular magazine Stardust. The photo was actually meant for one of the inside pages, but apparently, the masthead of the magazine cover was morphed with Gauhar’s photo, giving the impression that she has featured on the magazine cover. In reality, Ajay Devgn has graced the cover of the latest issue of Stardust.

Gauhar’s picture grabbed attention after Kushal shared it on his Instagram page while praising his ex-girlfriend. “@haiderkhanhaider saw this picture ... click by my brother Haider khan ..... could not risisset my self to share this picture of this stunner .... @gauaharkhan lady with grace, panache, ooomp and style with a golden heart …,” the actor wrote with the picture. The ‘Fever’ actress also acknowledged Kushal’s statement and replied, “I loooooooove this pic!!! @haiderkhanhaider youve always captured me amazingly…. Thank you!!!! N thank you @therealkushaltandon for not just posting this pic but for the kind words!!! You shine on!!!! #gratitude @stardustmagz.”

However, after seeing the picture, Stardust has decided to take legal action for misusing the masthead, and issued a media statement in this regard.

“Stardust would like to clarify that the post of Gauahar Khan on Instagram with the Stardust masthead has nothing to do with us. AJAY DEVGN is gracing the cover of Stardust February issue. We have come across a few articles which state that Gauahar is on the cover, so we would like to clear the air by saying that the news is false.

“Gauahar was also contacted for the same by us and unfortunately she cannot delete the post as she thinks the media will make news of the same and again question her reconciliation with Kushal Tandon.

“And Legal action will be taken against the one who has used the masthead without our permission, thus defying our Company Policy,” the statement read.  

An entertainment site quoted a source as saying, “Gauahar did shoot for the magazine and gave an interview. However, it was not for the cover.  Some fan of hers designed the picture and Kushal shared it. This is a matter of miscommunication and we feel it should be talked out not discussed in the media.”
