Our very own Indian superhero 'Krrish' seems to have landed in trouble once again. Reportedly, actor Hrithik Roshan along with eight other people has been accused of duping a Chennai-based stockist of Rs. 21 lakhs. The agent, R Muralidharan has filed a police complaint against Hrithik Roshan in Chennai’s Kodungaiyar area. As per the complainant, the Bollywood actor had appointed him as a stockist for his brand of merchandise products, HRX. A stockist is by definition a retailer who stocks goods of a particular type for the purpose of sale. Roshan had launched HRX in 2013 as a casual wear brand.
The stockist claimed that the brand was not supplying products on a regular basis as promised and even dissolved the marketing team without any prior information. Eventually, the sales dropped due to the lack of marketing and lack of proper supply chain. The complainant also stated that when he tried to return some of the products, the brand refused to take it back. Following the complaint, a case has been registered under section 420 of Indian Penal Code (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) against Hrithik Roshan and the other accused.
Before this, Hrithik Roshan was in a legal battle with actress Kangana Ranaut, after they slammed each other with a legal notice in 2016 based on their rumoured affair and a string of emails. It was rumoured that Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut were having an affair while they were shooting for 'Krrish 3', but split up soon after.
On the work front, Hrithik Roshan is currently shooting for Vikas Bahl’s 'Super 30' which is a biopic based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar. Roshan will essay the role of Anand Kumar in the film. The film is slated to release on January 25, 2019, and will clash with Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Manikarnika’ and Emraan Hashmi’s ‘Cheat India’. The actor will also be seen collaborating with Tiger Shroff in Siddharth Anand’s next.
