Ac­tor Kamya Pun­jabi’s an­nounce­ment that she’d re­lease what’s touted to be her friend, late ac­tor Pratyusha Banerjee’s last project be­fore she com­mit­ted sui­cide in 2016, has got her a le­gal no­tice from Pratyusha’s boyfriend, Rahul Raj Singh. The story of the film ti­tled Hum Kuch Keh Naa Sakey is said to bear sim­i­lar­i­ties to Pratyusha’s life, and has a char­ac­ter named Rahul. Kamya, how­ever, tells HT that Pratyusha’s beau Rahul — who had been ar­rested for al­legedly abet­ting the sui­cide — has noth­ing to do with the film. “Woh is­mein ghus kyu raha hai? Who is he? I don’t care about what he has to say or what light he is por­trayed in (in the film). The film has an old Pratyusha and Kamya as well,” she says, reacting to Rahul’s claims to the me­dia that “it’s a hoax, prob­a­bly footage shot 2-3 years ago be­ing re­cy­cled.” He also said: “I’ll make sure it’s le­gally stopped from screen­ing. I’ve also ap­proached the cy­ber­crime cell.” Kamya, who is yet to see the no­tice, says noth­ing will de­ter her spirit. “(No­tice) Aaya bhi hai toh dekha jayega. Kamya Pun­jabi kisi ke baap se nahi darti. Ear­lier, he had filed a defama­tion case against me. I’m yet to re­ceive that no­tice.” She adds that the pro­ducer has promised her that the money earned from the film will go to Pratyusha’s par­ents. “That’s why I’m all in. No ques­tion of me do­ing this for busi­ness,” says Kamya, who plans to hold a prayer meet for Pratyusha on April 1. “There’s no bet­ter day to screen the film,” she says.
