Ameesha Patel Issues FIRST Statement After Surrendering In Rs 3 Cr Cheque Bounce Case: ‘My Silence, Dignity And Respect For System Has Been Taken Advantage Of’
Ameesha Patel, who recently surrendered herself in a Rs 3 crore cheque bounce case in Ranchi, Jharkhand, has finally issued an official statement on the issue. The Bollywood actress has maintained that she has full faith in the judiciary system and that her silence has been taken advantage of by the complainant, Ajay Kumar Singh.


According to the complaint filed by Ajay, Ameesha had taken a loan of Rs 2.5 crore from him back in 2018 to make a film titled 'Desi Magic', but that never happened, reported Free Press Journal. She even promised to return to the reported amount with an interest of Rs 50 lakh, but when she handed over the cheques, they bounced.

'Desi Magic' was supposed to be directed by Mehul Atha, and it reportedly starred Zayed Khan, Ravi Kishan, Sahil Shroff, and Randhir Kapoor in lead roles, along with Ameesha. The film would also see Ameesha play a double role in the film and it was announced in 2013, but it has not seen the light of the day yet. 

On Saturday, June 17, 2023, Ameesha was seen surrendering in the Ranchi Civil court and she has promised to comply with the law and let it take its due course. 


In her statement, Ameesha began by thanking her fans and well-wishers for their messages and went on to share that she chose to stay quiet in order to law take its due course. 

A Free Press Journal quoted her saying, "It is unfortunate that my silence, dignity and respect for the system has been taken advantage of by Mr Ajay from Ranchi, who has chosen to spread an environment of bias by creating a public spectacle and to make himself famous at my expense, of what is otherwise due legal process." 

She went on to state, "The complaint made with ulterior motives is wrong and will ultimately be dealt with by the court system. The Hon'ble Supreme Court is seeing through it as it deserves to be and has stayed the proceedings for cheating and breach of trust. I have never made a media spectacle of this fact, it's below my dignity and class to stoop to such levels. I trust our judiciary to render justice and that would be the correct medium for people to know the facts."

Ameesha even assured her fans that she will bounce back soon and let things take their due course naturally. 

"Pettiness naturally survives on falsehood and manipulation. Let's channel our energy and focus on the good and positive things in life rather than some manipulative individuals thirst for fame fueled with cheap ulterior motives," she concluded.
