A designs firm has filed a criminal complaint against Shraddha Kapoor and one of the producers of her next release, Haseena Parkar, for cheating and breach of trust.
According to complaint, Shraddha failed to promote the fashion label ‘AJTM’ during the promotional campaign of her film.
The company’s law producer, Swiss Entertainment, told PTI, “M&M Designs firm which supplied dresses for the actor in the movie has filed a private complaint in the Mumbai court and the case will come up for hearing on October 26.”
“The actor was supposed to do promotional activities of the brand and the store against the costumes which were supplied to the makers (producers) for the film,” the lawyer added.
The complainant accused Shraddha of ‘willfully, miserably, intentionally and malafidely’ failing and neglecting to comply with her ‘roles, duties and obligations’ under the contract.
“My clients had worked very hard for the project under their brand name AJTM, as it was their golden entry into Bollywood. After their personal meeting with Ms Shraddha Kapoor, they put their heart and soul into this project titled ‘Haseena Parkar’.
“It is very unfortunate that the obligations as undertaken in the agreement were not performed, and my clients felt cheated. Therefore my said clients had no option but to file a criminal complaint against the producer and Shraddha,” the lawyer was quoted by news agency Press Trust of India.
Shraddha’s next film is scheduled to release on 22 September with the film’s story revolving around the life of Haseena Parkar, underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
