A team of officials from the Uttar Pradesh Police visited the home of Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha in Juhu on Thursday in connection with a case of cheating filed against her in Moradabad last year.
An event organiser named Pramod Sharma had filed a complaint against Sonakshi with the police in Moradabad in February 2018. In the complaint, he accused the Dabangg actor of not turning up for an event in New Delhi at the very last moment after accepting a booking amount of Rs 24 lakhs.
The UP Police, assisted by officials from the Juhu police station, went to Sonakshi Sinha’s home on Thursday evening to question her in regard with the allegations. However, senior police officials said that the actor was not at home and the police left after waiting for a few hours. An official at Juhu police station said that the UP police team is likely to visit Sonakshi’s home again on Friday.
Sonakshi later took to social media and wrote, “An event organizer who couldn’t live up to his commitment obviously thinks he can make a fast buck by maligning my crystal clear image in the press. There is full cooperation with the authorities from my end for the investigation to be conducted. Would request the media not to fan these bizarre claims of an unscrupulous man.”
