In a shocking case, a case got filed against actress Ameesha Patel for fraud of Rs2.5 crore. The case was slapped by filmmaker Ajay Kumar Singh against the actress and her business partner Kuunal Groomer at the Ranchi court.
The filmmaker said that Ameesha took the amount from him to make a film titled Desi Magic, but it never happened. And she never returned the money back, said Ajay. Narrating his ordeal, Ajay said, “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. They also threatened me by showing me Ameesha’s photos with some influential people. They say the film will release this year, but I haven’t got any updates on their plans.”
