Actress summoned in Rs 2.5 cr fraud

Actress Ameesha Patel has been summoned by Ranchi court in a cheating case to the tune of Rs 2.0 crore. It all happened after producer Ajay Kumar Singh moved court against Ameesh accusing her of cheating him by borrowing money but then never returned back.

“We have filed a case in a Ranchi court after a cheque of Rs 3 crore bounced. She has not been responding to anything with regard to the money she borrowed from me last year for the release of a film named ‘Desi Magic’. Now she has been summoned by the court and she has to appear before the court on July 8,” Singh said.

“If she doesn’t come, a warrant will be issued against her. We went to court on June 17 with the request to issue a warrant since she is not responding, but the judge of the court suggested sending a summon by the police before an arrest warrant,” he added.

“Initially, I was told that the film will release in June (this year). Then I was told that it will release in September. But I will get my money with interest by September. Though I was given a cheque of Rs 3 crore, it bounced. When I tried to do a follow-up, her whole attitude changed and she said I am a small investor and I should keep quiet. But it is my money,” said Singh.
