Prernaa Arora exposed in cheating case; KriArj co-founder’s bail application rejected
Prernaa Arora, the co-founder of KriArj Entertainment, produced some terrific films like ‘Rustom’, ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Pari’, ‘Pad Man’ and others in the last few years. However, now she has been entangled in legal issues for duping producers and directors of money. Last year, Prerna was arrested for allegedly duping Vashu Bhagnani and his production house Pooja Entertainment and Films Ltd of around Rs. 31 crores.
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Prernaa allegedly also conned a director whom she owed Rs 1.5 crore by trying to pass off a previous payment made to Amitabh Bachchan as his settlement. The report further stated that after finding some shocking evidence in the charge sheet, the Session Court has rejected the bail application of Prernaa.
The 1, 176-page chargesheet also revealed that Prernaa took money from film financiers and used that money to splurge on buying properties and for shopping luxury items. She still owes money tune to Rs 29.40 crore to some stores who have already sent her a notice. The investigation further revealed about her fake identity with multiple passports and documents with different birthdates – 1979, 1983, 1986.
Arora’s lawyer has not issued any statement on her behalf yet. So it has to be seen what Prernaa has to say in her defence now.
