In a new turn of events, film and teledrama star Damitha Abeyratne has planned to take actress Semini Iddamalgoda to courts demanding Rs. 1000 million as damages for defaming her.

Damitha has sent a letter of demand through her Attorney Ms Samanthi Gamage, refuting the allegations made by Semini Iddamalgoda who earlier sued her for Rs. 500 million damaging her (Semini) reputation.

In a counter action to be filed, Damitha said that she never attempted to character assassinate a contemporary of the same profession for personal gains. Damitha in her letter of demand has complained that her reputation has been damaged by defamation action filed by Semini.

However in a statement to media Damitha said even though publicity was given by Semini to the effect that she had sued her for malicious defamation so far she had not received any summons related to an action. Damitha claimed in addition to being a teledrama and film actress over 32 years, she also had contributed for voice dubbing, advertising and singing. She had won the coveted best actress award on several occasions. Having considered all facts she has decided to counter the charges leveled against her and prove her innocence by filing an action through her attorneys Ms Samanthi Gamage, Pradeep Gamage and senior counsel Neville Abeyratne to recover cost of damages caused to her goodwill and reputation.
