Actor Ayushmann Khurrana and two others from the Bollywood film industry have been called for questioning by the Thane police in connection with a cheating complaint filed against them by a director on Monday.
According to reports, the complaint against the trio has been filed by 39-year-old film director Kamalkant Nanak Chandra, a resident of Mira Road, a suburb of Mumbai located in Thane district.
A letter of memorandum was sent to Ayushmann, director Amar Kaushik and producer Dinesh Vijan, both of Maddock Films, Mumbai based a leading production house, by the Kashimira police station after receiving the complaint, said an official.
The episode dates back to the time when Kamalkant Nanak Chandra was working on the script of a film which was to be directed by him, the official said, quoting from the complaint. According to complainant, he had sent the script of the story to Khurrana on his WhatsApp number, which is similar to the story of ‘Bala’.
Further Chandra claimed that Ayushmann allegedly passed on that script to Kaushik and Vijan and they started making a movie based on it. This caused financial loss and mental anguish to Chandra, who felt cheated by the trio, revealed the official, citing the complaint.
