A Madhya Pradesh court has issued summons against Bollywood actor Ameesha Patel in connection with a Rs 10 lakh cheque bounce case, said the advocate for the petitioner on Friday.
Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Manish Bhatt issued the summons on Wednesday after registering a complaint against the 43-year-old actor under section 318 of Negotiable Instruments Act.
MP court issues summons against Ameesha Patel
“We had sent a notice to Ameesha Patel but she refused to accept it. So, we approached a court here, which issued a summon against her. She has to appear before the court on January 27, 2020, or else a warrant will be issued against her,”
Parmar told ANI. The actor had allegedly taken Rs 10 lakh from a person called Nisha Chhipa around six months ago for producing a movie. “Ameesha Patel gave a cheque worth Rs 10 lakh to Nisha Chhipa. However, it bounced,” the advocate added.
Meanwhile, last month, Ranchi court issued an arrest warrant against Ameesha in a cheating and cheque bounce case.
Ameesha made her acting debut in 2000 with romantic thriller Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai, directed by Rakesh Roshan. She rose to prominence through Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001), which became one of the biggest hits in Bollywood.
