Natalia Janoszek began to appear in the Polish media as „a star who conquered Bollywood“. She has published her own book detailing her career in India. Her success was allegedly evidenced by numerous awards, including prestigious JIFFA award. However, it turns out that the JIFFA award is not prestigious at all. Jharkhand International Film Festival Awards has only a 5-year history. It also does not have its own website, nor too many recipients. Plus, it takes place in a school-like location. Janoszek benefited from the fact that the name of the award was confusingly similar to the really prestigious IFFA (International Film Festival of India) award. But IFFA has over 70 years of tradition…

In addition, the film that was supposed to be her greatest success, titled „ChickenCurry Law“, has only 90 ratings on the largest review site in the world (source: IMDb). Moreover, “The Times of India” rated it 2/5 and its box office only has 6,000 views (Source: Box Office India). Interestingly, Janoszek has 1.8 million followers on Instagram, but 84% of them are fake accounts (source: Modash). The „star“ was unmasked on May 23 by Krzysztof Stanowski on his YouTube channel.
