A cheating case has been filed against Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and eight others in Chennai. As reported by TOI, the complaint has been filed by R Muralidharan who claims that he was appointed as a stockist by a merchandise brand called HRX, that was launched by Hrithik Roshan in 2014.
However, HRX tweeted its statement on the subject and said that they have “no association with the matter in question.”
Here’s what the full statement said:
“Hrithik Roshan and HRX Brand have no association with the matter in question in news. HRX Brand had been licensed to Global Fragrances for limited purposes. License was terminated by HRX Brand because of defaults by Global. Neither Hrithik Roshan nor HRX Brand are responsible to Muralidharan, the complainant. Neither HRX Brand nor Hrithik Roshan were responsible in engaging Muralidharan, the complainant, and are not liable for Global Fragrances’ actions.”

Muralidharan claims that Roshan and the others conspired to dupe him of Rs 21 lakh. He has also alleged that the company did not supply the products regularly and even dissolved the marketing firm without his knowledge. Because of this, the products became stagnated as there were no sales. Muralidharan states that when he sent back the products, the accused did not pay him for the same.
Based on Muralidharan’s complaint, Kodungaiyur police has registered a case against Hrithik Roshan and eight others. The complaint was filed in June under Section 420 of the IPC (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property).
On the work front, Hrithik Roshan is currently getting ready for his next release Super 30. The film is being helmed by Queen director Vikas Bahl and is scheduled to release in January 2019.
