A First Information Report (FIR) has been lodged against Armaan Kohli for allegedly physically and verbally abusing a fashion designer. The ex-’Bigg Boss’ contestant, however, denied the claims made against him.
Apart from the actor, his friend Dilip Rajput and his domestic help Nitin have also been named in the complaint, according to reports.
In the complaint, the woman named Nadia Aheli has stated that she had first met Armaan at a party few months ago in Juhu, Mumbai. Recently, they met at another bash where the actor allegedly verbally abused her. Moreover, the complaint states that he also allegedly called her up and used foul language on the call.
The FIR has been lodged under Indian Penal Code (IPC) 509, 506 and 34, confirmed a police officer at Versova police station in Mumbai, adding that the force is investigating the matter.
Nadia in an interview with an entertainment portal said that Armaan and Dilip made ‘unreasonable demands’ to her. The fashion designer claimed that the duo had borrowed Rs 50 lakh from her. However, when she asked them to return the money, she claims they ‘threatened’ her and also allegedly ‘physically hurt’ her.
The actor, however, denied the allegations made against him to a tabloid. He asserted that his name was being ‘dragged’ into the case, which he claimed was against someone else. Armaan expressed confidence about his name being cleared and that it was not a big issue.
This is not the first time Armaan has had a run-in with the law. He was arrested for assaulting his live-in girlfriend Neeru Randhawa earlier this year. He was released after she withdrew the complaint against him. He was also arrested from ‘Bigg Boss’ house for assaulting Sofia Hayat and ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ fame Munmun Dutta had also alleged Armaan assaulted her.
On the professional front, Armaan Kolhi's last major appearance was in Salman Khan-Sonam Kapoor's hit 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' which released in 2015.
