'I try to maintain distance wherever I can't vibe': Sonya Hussyn on legal notice to Tich Button's Urwa Hocane.

Actor Sonya Hussyn doesn't believe her legal notice to Tich Button producer Urwa Hocane is a 'misunderstanding'. She said in a recent interview that she approached Urwa prior to sending the notice but never got a response.

A week or so after the notice went public, Urwa appeared on Express TV's The Talk Talk Show and claimed it must have been a 'misunderstanding. Sonya had claimed that her contract for Tich Button had been breached and she hadn't been paid the full stipulated amount.

'Basically, when Time Out With Ahsan Khan came out, the issue had already spread like wildfire and at that time I had told my lawyer to approach them but they said that after film wraps up, there's a time period of two years to make the payment but they never responded back to us.
