New Delhi: Actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Urvashi Rautela, who endorsed the gaming company Lotus 365 as its brand ambassador have also received notices from the Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA), which has also taken suo moto cognisance of an advertisement published in newspapers by the gaming company for making a misleading claim that their firm was “India’s most-trusted sports exchange since 2015,” according to reports.

The firm has now been asked to submit proof of its claims. They have been asked to reply as to why they found that the company’s claims were correct, before endorsing them. They will have to prove why they saw authenticity in the claims made by the brand.

The consumer affairs ministry had previously asked celebrities to be careful and carry out “specific diligence” before endorsing products.
