Ameesha Patel accuses of Rs 2.5 Crore fraud
Producer Ajay Kumar Singh files a complaint with the Ranchi court against the two claiming alleging fraud and cheque bouncing.
According 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.”
Talking about the whole incident, Ajay told the leading tabloid, “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.”
