New Delhi: Actress-politician Nusrat Jahan on Monday approached the Kolkata Police after a video dating app allegedly used her photo without her consent for its promotion. The app used her photo with a caption that read – “Make new friends sitting at home during lockdown”. 

She tweeted to Kolkata Police Commissioner Anuj Sharma and shared a screenshot of the advertisement. Nusrat also added that she could take legal action against the app.

Nusrat wrote, “This is totally unacceptable – using pictures without consent. Would request the Cyber Cell of Kolkata Police to kindly look into the same. I am ready to take this up legally,” read Nusrat’s tweet.

The Kolkata Police immediately took cognizance of the matter and a senior officer said that that the issue is being looked into.

“We have taken a note of the matter and the same is being looked into by our concerned section for necessary action,” a tweet by the department read.  

Nusrat Jahan, a Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP from Basirhat, is a prominent actress of the Bengali film industry. She was last seen in ‘Asur’ while her upcoming movie is ‘SOS Kolkata’.
