Mumbai, Nov 24 (IBNS) Close on the heels of the arrest of journalist-turned-actor-turned-publicist Anant Narayan, after a police complaint by former Miss India and actress Sayali Bhagat, a new PR scandal is coming to the fore.
This time, another journalist-turned-publicist called Flynn Remedios has been falsely claiming to be firebrand Rakhi Sawant´s publicist and issuing misleading statements on her behalf.
Flynn, who has earlier been arrested and jailed for various cases involving starlets Nandini Jumani, Sherlyn Chopra and Moon Das, is learnt to have sent out various press releases to the media, announcing developments in Rakhi´s career, as well as addressing issues and controversies on her behalf in the media.
But recently, when he spread false reports that Rakhi wants pornstar Sunny Leone out of Bigg Boss, Rakhi blew her top. "This Flynn guy had been calling me, posing as a journalist first and extracting information about my work, in the garb of taking my interviews. Later, when I learnt that he was incorrectly claiming to be my publicist, I stopped speaking to him and taking his calls. He has never been my publicist, but keeps issuing fake statements on my behalf," fumes Rakhi.
