Controversies

Faux Cover Photo

The Indian actor Kushal Tandon once posted a picture of Gauahar with the Stardust magazine logo. Many people started speculating that Gauahar was featured as the cover girl for that month’s magazine. However, it turned out that the image was fake. As a result, the officials from Stardust magazine released a statement clarifying that Gauahar’s Instagram post with the Stardust logo had nothing to do with them. They reached out to Gauahar to ask her to remove the post, but she was hesitant because she was afraid that the media would make negative speculations about her. The magazine officials even said that they would take legal action against the person who used their logo without permission, which goes against their company policy. Later, in a video, Gauahar explained the situation and made everything clear. She said,

It’s very unprofessional when certain media outlets use my personal conversations with them as quotes. It’s saddening. The picture itself doesn’t show that it was a cover of the magazine they talked about. They have also mentioned that they will take legal action against the people who made it, so please stay calm!”
