KUALA LUMPUR: Actress Vanidah Imran's suit against a manufacturing company in relation to a breach of contract and the misuse of her image will go to trial.

Vanidah's counsel Aizul Rohan Anuar, who is assisted by Mohamad Saiful Dzulhelmi Zulkifli, told reporters that the trial dates were fixed for two days beginning April 11 after the parties failed to reach settlement via mediation.

"We will call two witnesses, who are Vanidah and her manager Sharon Choo, to give their testimony in the trial before Sessions Court judge Roszianayati Ahmad," he said after meeting Mediation Centre director Che Wan Zaidi Che Wan Ibrahim here on Friday.

Vanidah was not present. Counsel Rina Chew appeared for Miliyasutra Industries Sdn Bhd, the manufacturer for cosmetic product Ronasutra.

Vanidah filed the suit on Oct 28 last year, and named Miliyasutra Industries as the defendant. 

In her statement of claim, the plaintiff alleged that she signed a contract worth RM490,000 with the company in September 2012 for two years and during the period, she had fulfilled her responsibilities without receiving any complaint from the defendant.

However, she alleged that when the contract expired in September 2014, she had yet to receive the balance payment of RM265,000 and following this, the defendant had on April 6, 2015, suggested a RM60,500 payment as full settlement. 

Vanidah, who is the main actress in The Red Kebaya movie, said around July 2016, she discovered that the defendant had misused her image in the sale of various Ronasutra cosmetic products. She alleges that the misuse continues til today.

The wife of actor Rashidi Ishak, is claiming for the balance of payment of RM265,000; RM500,000 in damages for using her image without consent; general damages, exemplary damages and aggravated damages.
