Bollywood celebs have some sort of a strange connection with controversies, don’t you agree? And some stars are more prone to controversies than others. Now, actor Aditya Pancholi has once again found himself in trouble and a case regarding assault and exploitation has been filed against him. Yes, you have read it right!

An investigation has been opened by Versova Police against actor Aditya Pancholi after receiving an e-mail application from a leading Bollywood actress’ sister. A complaint of ‘assault and exploitation’ has been reportedly filed against the 54-year-old actor. The alleged incident occurred more than a decade ago during the early stages of the victim’s career.

The actor told tabloid Mid-Day that the actress’ lawyer threatened to file a false rape case against him. Then following which, the veteran actor filed a defamation suit against the actress.

A police officer investigating the case told the publication, “After receiving the complaint, we have approached the actor to record her statement so we can ascertain the nature of alleged exploitation and file the FIR under appropriate sections. The incident happened 13 years ago we have to gather a lot of evidence to register an FIR. In her application, the complainant has also alleged that Pancholi’s wife was aware of this.”

Aditya Pancholi also shot back and told the Entertainment portal, “I have already filed a defamation case against the actor, which is sub-judice. Following the defamation case, her lawyer, on January 6 this year, threatened to file a rape case against me if I didn’t withdraw the defamation case against his client. Thankfully, I have recorded the 18-minute meeting with him. The video in the form of evidence has been submitted to the court and to the police as well.”

Pancholi further added that there is a conspiracy against him to malign his reputation. Hopefully, both the parties will allow the law to take its own course.
