MUMBAI: Angry over splashing of her bikini pictures while holidaying with her beau Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif says the media violated ethics by encroaching upon her privacy.
In an open letter to the media, the 31-year-old actress says, “I am writing this to say that I feel most upset, distressed and invaded at my pictures published in a film magazine (and which were carried by other media). The pictures were taken while I was on holiday by someone who, in an act of cowardice, has shot without permission and then used the pictures for commercial gain.’’
She adds, “There is a breed of journalism that preys on celebrities in the worst possible manner crossing all lines of privacy and decency. Running these pictures shows support for this school of journalism.
“I request that all media running these pictures please refrain from doing so. I have a wonderful relationship with the media and have been accessible to the media at all times. There is no reason for this furtive and invasive behaviour.’’
