Khan took to Instagram to share a copy of the legal notice, stating that she too wanted to share her response on a public forum since it started on social media. The actress also provided with the image of the courier receipt for the notice.

Since it started in public forum,I m forced to share my response too but d RIGHT WAY. ‬ ‪my advocate @sarthak7468 from Supreme Court of India . Sent a legal notice with proper stamp n signature to them.so this is how a legal notice looks like, not like an unsigned unstamped fake notice created just for cheap publicity..We really work hard to reach where we r n just because ‘a celeb’ is n easy target u will not get to use it to ur benefit... The law works wonders for an innocent who is wrongly accused and it gets better if you have proper proofs. Attaching the courier receipt for my notice.Surprisingly it never appeared for the imaginary notice sent to me. No hawa hawaai only seedhi baat #SatyamevJayate #NotAnEasyTarget

Though she is trying hard to return it and she has already paid around Rs 2,86,000. Media houses are discussing legal notice which has reached them unfortunately and not me. I just want to say show me the signatures of receiving on it," The Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hain actress said.
