Bollywood actress Ameesha Patel enjoys a huge social media following. She became a household name with her debut film Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai co-starring Hrithik Roshan. While she is all set to return to the big screens with the much-awaited Gadar 2, the actress on Saturday, was spotted outside the Ranchi court covering her face. She was accused of cheating businessman-producer Ajay Kumar Singh of Rs 3 crores. According to a report by the Free Press Journal, she surrendered to the court in the cheque bouncing case.
It was 2018, that the actress had met with Singh during an event in Ranchi where she had convinced him to finance her movie ‘Desi Magic’ with Rs 2.5 crores. However, according to the publication’s report she and her business associate Krunal Goomer never completed shooting the project. They had promised the filmmaker that they would return his movie with an interest of Rs 50 lakhs. After persuasion for the complainant’s side, Ameesha handed him two cheques of Rs 2.5 crore and Rs 50 lakh respectively in October 2018.
However, the cheques bounced which led the producer to take the legal route and file a complaint against Ameesha and her business partner Krunal. On Saturday morning, during the hearing she surrendered herself in the Ranchi Civil Court and was granted a conditional bail. She had been asked to physically appear before the court in June 21. Now a video of the actress leaving the court with a covered face is going viral on social media.
