Ajay Kumar Singh, a film producer, said that he placed 2.5 crore into Ameesha Patel’s account for a film but she didn’t make the film and never gave him his money back. As a result, he accused Ameesha Patel with defrauding and criminal breach of trust.
The Supreme Court has postponed criminal proceedings for the charges of cheating and criminal breach of trust against Bollywood star Ameesha Patel in connection with summonses issued by a trial court in Jharkhand.
A panel of Justices B R Gavai and P S Narasimha handed a notice to the Jharkhand government in response to the actor’s petition.
Ameesha appealed the Jharkhand High Court’s denial of her motion for the quashing and setting aside of an order made by a trial court in Ranchi in connection with a complaint against her on May 5, 2022, and that court’s judgement led to the top court’s decision.
The court has taken notice of the violations under Sections 406, 420, 34, and 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act and Section 406 of the Indian Penal Code after producer Ajay Kumar Singh submitted a complaint.
Ajay reportedly deposited 2.5 crore to the actor’s bank account to make the movie Desi Magic. Ameesha, however, failed to deliver on her commitment to complete the film and did not return the money either. According to the high court, it first appears that each of the accused parties is liable for reimbursing the cash in question.
