(sic) (I am shocked to hear that a person named Sunil Chouhan, posing as my secretary, is conning people by telling them that he will be organising my programmes. He has conned people for lakhs of rupees saying that I will be performing in Holland. He is showing a fake photograph to people, posing along with me. I am planning to take legal action against him very soon. Beware of the conman)," Lata wrote on microblogging site Twitter.
