Sonakshi Sinha was accused of cheating by a Uttar Pradesh based management company in 2018 and Moradabad police recently reached her residence in Mumbai yesterday to investigate the matter.
The police however, left in a few years as she was busy for the promotions of her upcoming film Khandaani Shafakhana and was not at home.
For the uninitiated, an event management company alleged in 2018 that Sonakshi had accepted a booking amount of Rs 24 lakh for a performance at an event in Delhi, but failed to make it to the event. One of the organisers named Pramod Sharma also filed an FIR against Sonakshi on February 22, 2019.
Case was registered against the actress at Katghar Police Station under sections 420 (cheating) & 406 of IPC.
When the leading daily contacted the local police of Juhu, they confirmed the news stating, "The Moradabad police had approached us on Thursday asking for support from local police. We provided them with the manpower and the team had gone to their house Ramayana in Juhu for recording the statement of Sinha. The police wanted to record Sinha's statement but she was not in the house when the police team visited the house. They are likely to visit the house again on Friday."
Sonakshi's spokesperson too has been quoted saying, "In her nine years long career she has only worked with complete honesty and sincerity. What this man is accusing her of is completely untrue and baseless. This is just a way of extortion by maligning her spot free reputation in the press and it is not something that Sonakshi and her team will succumb to. She is a thorough professional and we have been more than cooperative with whichever authorities that have gotten in touch with us because we have nothing to hide."
It's left to see what turn does this case take hereafter.
On the professional front, Sonakshi upcoming movie Khandaani Shafakhana co-starring Varun Sharma and Badshah releases on August 2 with Parineeti Chopra-Sidharth Malhotra starrer Jabariya Jodi.
