Online shopping is very popular because of the convenience it offers. Recently, new ways to save money while shopping online have grown tremendously in popularity. Shoppers have traditionally shopped through a retailer, filled an online shopping cart and then paid. Another way is to shop through an online auction site and bid against other shoppers for items. Recently, shopping through deal a day coupon websites has quickly become a very popular option because of the large discounts available and the use of celebrity names attract lot of customers.
World News Network went online and tried to check the policies and the quality of the shopping material. We ordered four sarees from Indiarush.com, and were surprised to know that the quality and the material delivered was below par and defective .We contacted the company customer care for the return and refund policy but did not get any response after speaking and sending mails The company CEO Rahi Jain told us that we have to go through customer policy and in fact did not answer any queries.
We went into details of the website as it had a lot of celebrity endorsements and were totally shocked as all the pictures carried by the company were without the permission of them and they requested us to solve this issue of online fraud. World News Network spoke to celebrities and this is what they said.
Chitrangada Singh– I am not associated with any online shopping website
Gauhar Khan– I am not associated with any such kind of shopping website.
Drashti Dhami– oh my god they are using my pictures, it’s totally fake and I am not endorsing for any online shopping company. Please as a media you should do something to reveal the truth!
Mandira Bedi– I am shocked to hear about that online shopping company and I am not associated or ever endorsed any such kind of company Indiarush.com. I don’t know why are they using my photograph now my team will follow them
Monica Bedi-Actually online is a big gambling nowadays. I have faced many times this kind of situation as being an actor we sometimes do photo shoots for designers as they provide the clothes. Sometimes these kind of company do photo shoot with some other models and use our pictures on the model’s photo.
Sushmita Sen’s spokesperson said ‘Sushmita Sen was interested in endorsing or launching some online shopping material but now she is not keen to be associated with any online platform and she has not endorsed for Indiarush.com for sure.
The names don’t end here. Other celebrities whose pictures and names were used for reference are Vidya Balan, Madhuri Dixit, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor, Sridevi, Kajol, Shraddha Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and others. When we contacted them at that time of filing the story, they were unavailable for comments.
When we spoke to Advocate Falguni Brahmbhatt she said, “Indiarush.com can be booked for cheating and a complaint can be lodged against them for infringement of copy rights and IT Act.”
Well, after getting the facts from the celebrities we are just wondering how online companies are using big Bollywood celebrity names to attract innocent customers who spend their money to look like their favorite stars.
