KriArj Entertainment co-producer Prerna Arora finally gets bail. She was in jail for the past nearly 8 months in a fraud case.
Prerna Arora along with Protima, director of production house KriArj Entertainment Pvt Ltd and promoter Arjun Kapoor accused of allegedly cheating film financier Vashu Bhagnani and his production house Pooja Entertainment and Films Ltd of Rs 31.6 crore.
Reportedly, the three had borrowed money from producer Vashu Bhagnani for ‘Padman’ and ‘Kedarnath’, but did not return it later.

Now, after coming out of jail, Prerna apologizes to everyone. She says, “After coming out of prison I went to some temple. I started believing in God. I apologize to all those who I inadvertently caused trouble. I would just like to say that I now realize what the true values of life are. I thank my parents for standing with me in this difficult period.”
“I don’t know what to say. I don’t have any problem with Vashu. It was a mistake I made. If there was a big mentor around me, things wouldn’t have gone so wrong. But now I am back and will continue to do filmmaking. I will take some time to settle down. But I am not going anywhere now.” she added.
“I learned many things in jail. I learned the value of money and time. I underwent many changes. I will talk in detail soon, but when the time is right,” said Prerna.
Reportedly, Prerna had come out of jail on 16 September.
Prerna who produced films like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Rustom, and Padman, was arrested in early December last year by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai police.
