Ameesha Patel held in Rs 2.5 crore fraud case: Inside story
New Delhi : Bollywood actor Ameesha Patel who has given good number of films in early 2000s has been missing for quite some time. But, now she is limelight for some wrong reasons. The sting operation video of Ameesha Patel agreeing to expose a certain political party in lieu of money has gone viral on social media, landing the actress in a state of controversy.
Mumbai Mirror, a city-based compact newspaper reports that a financier and film producer has lodged a case against Ameesha Patel and her business partner Kuunal Goomer for cheating him of Rs 2.5 crore. Producer Ajay Kumar Singh has alleged that he had lent Rs 2.5 crore to the duo for their film, Desi Magic, which hasn't seen the light of the day. Not just that, Singh has alleged that the duo gave him a cheque of Rs 3 crore which bounced and when the financier went back to them, he was apparently told that they have no intentions of returning the money.
"I had given Ameesha and Kuunal Rs 2.5 crore when they visited Ranchi in March last year for an event. They had told me the film would release by June 2018 and would be a profitable venture for me. It has yet to arrive at the theatres and when I badgered them, they promised to return my money with interest in two-three months. They even gave me a cheque of Rs 3 crore but it bounced and when I went back to them, they told me this time that they had no intention of refunding my money," Ajay Singh told the daily.
The producer and financier have now moved to court alleging fraud and cheque bouncing case against the 'Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai' actress
