Ameesha Patel in legal trouble; filmmaker accuses ‘Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai’ actress of Rs 2.5 crore fraud
Bollywood actress Ameesha Patel of ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai’ is now stuck in a legal problem for a fraud case filed by a filmmaker against her. Ameesha Patel, with her business partner, took a loan of a huge amount from Ajay Kumar Singh.
The actress took a loan of a whopping amount – Rs 2.5 cr for a film which never released. A film producer named Ajay Kumar Singh accused Ameesha Patel and his partner Kuunal Goomer as they never returned even a penny from the loan.
Ajay Kumar has now filed a fraud case with the Ranchi court alleging the fraud and the cheque bounce issue. As per a source close to Mumbai Mirror, “Ajay claims he had given the duo Rs 2.5 crore as financier to complete their long-in-the-making film ‘Desi Magic’ and all that he has to show for it today are some bounced cheques.”
Explaining about the whole incident, Ajay Kumar told the daily,”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. The film is yet to arrive at the theatres and when I requested them, they promised to return my money with interest in a few months. They even gave me a cheque of Rs 3 crores but it bounced and when I went back to them, they told me that they had no intention of refunding my money. They also threatened me by showing me Ameesha’s photos with some influential people. They said that the film will release this year, but I haven’t got any updates on their plans”.
It is not for the first time that Ameesha Patel is accused of a fraud case. A few months back, an event manager named Pawan Sharma had also accused the actress of cheating him.
