Katrina Kaif is angry after her holiday pictures with Ranbir Kapoor surfaced in newspapers and now in an open letter, the Bollywood actress has requested the media to refrain from further publishing the images.
"I am writing this to say that I feel most upset, distressed and invaded at my pictures published in the August issue of a film magazine (and which were carried by other media with credits to the source magazine).
"The pictures were taken while I was on holiday by someone who, in an act of cowardice, has shot without permission and then used the pictures for commercial gain," Kaif, 30, wrote in the letter.
The actress said the photographs, where Katrina is seen in a red and white bikini with Ranbir at a beach in Ibiza in Spain, were an invasion of her privacy.
"I request that all media running these pictures please refrain from doing so. I have a wonderful relationship with the media and have been accessible to the media at all times. There is no reason for this furtive and invasive behaviour," she added.
