Ameesha Patel accused of Rs. 2.5 crore fraud, case filed – Ameesha Patel, last seen in Bhaiyyaji Superhitt, has come in limelight due to controversy. This time the actress has been charged with Rs. 2.5 crore case for fraud and cheating. Not only Ameesha but also her business partner Kuunal Goomer have been slapped with the case.
Producer Ajay Kumar Singh slapped a case on Ameesha Patel and Kuunal Goomer for not returning the money which they had borrowed to make a film Desi Magic under their production house. Featuring Ameesha Patel, Esha Gupta, Zayed Khan and Sahil Shroff in lead roles, the movie went on floors in 2013 but there was no update on it post that.
Talking about the incident, Ajay Kumar told India Today, “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.”
Ameesha Patel has been trying her luck with movies but the only gain-to-fame movies which she appeared in were Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai and Sunny Deol starrer Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. Meanwhile producer Ajay Kumar Singh is awaiting the release of his upcoming Hindi film Family of Thakurganj which stars Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster duo Jimmy Sheirgill and Mahie Gill.
