Actress Nivetha Pethuraj of Oru Naal Koothu fame is deeply hurt by a section of media for posting glamour pics of a model and project her as the Tik Tik Tik girl on the social media. The model sported bikini and netizens thought it was Nivetha who deliberately posed for such steamy pics.

In her official statement, Nivetha said:”For the past few days some section of the media were constantly using the images of some aspiring artiste and had been using my name, thus creating an impression that it was me who is seen in that picture. This was brought to my notice by many calls from well-wishers and friends. This deliberate attempt to malign my image has hurt me very badly. I’m in touch with my legal team to handle this issue. Considering the huge respect I have for the media, I had been maintaining a dignified silence. But it looks that there is no respite from this irresponsible act. May I request them to verify and carry the news and images of the concerned artiste. After all, we are also human beings and we have a family too. We too live in a society which has bearings in our day to day life.  I hope this will put things in a straight line. Any further repeated acts according to my legal counsel will invite legal proceedings”.

Nivetha is currently busy with Vijay Antony’s Thimiru Pudichavan, she has also been roped in to play an important role in Dulquer’s new film with Ra.Karthik.
