A police complaint has been filed against actor turned producer-director Ajay in the Jharkhand capital by the owner of a production house, charging the actor with cheating.
According to sources, â€œThe FIR was lodged in Argora police station of the city on February 27th by one, Rajesh Kumar Prasad of Kumar Art International (KAI), charging the actor with cheating, as he had not assigned dates for the movie he signed even after taking the signing amount. The complaint states that KAI, which also has an office Mumbai, signed a movie with Devgan January 1995. The actor was to be paid Rs. 21 lakhs as his acting remuneration and KAI gave him Rs. 200,000 as his signing amount. But the multiple National Award winner actor who plays the lead role in the movie, had spared only few hours and after that never bothered, the complaint said.
The complaint also further states that Prasad approached the actorâ€™s personal secretary to get time but did not get any positive response. After waiting for 14 years, he lodged FIR against Ajay.
The FIR has been lodged under different sections of IPC including 406 (criminal breach of trust) and 420 (cheating).
Prasad, a resident of Ranchi, has said that the movie agreement was signed here itself. He further said Ajayâ€™s act caused heavy financial loss and mental stress to him.
