A case has been filed against actor Sonakshi Sinha and four others for allegedly not performing at an event in Delhi despite accepting payment for the same.
According to the complainant, Sonakshi had agreed to be a part of his show in Delhi on September 30 and even accepted Rs 37 lakh for the same. However, she refused to turn up at the last minute, he added.
The complainant told ANI, “I tried convincing her a lot to perform at the event and even told her that I will incur huge losses if she doesn’t come, but she refused to perform.” Investigation against Sonakshi and three others against whom the complaint was filed is underway. As per reports, the audience who were expecting to see Sonakshi perform were left disappointed and they even vandalised the venue in retaliation, which is why the organisers incurred heavy losses. Sonakshi and her legal team are yet to respond to the case.
Moradabad DSP Gajraj Singh said an FIR has been lodged against the 'Dabanng' star and three others on charges of cheating. Investigation in the case is underway.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Sonakshi last appeared in Mudassar Aziz's 'Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi' along with Diana Penty, Jimmy Sheirgill, Ali Fazal, Piyush Mishra, and Jassi Gill. She will be next seen in Ajay Devgn's 'Total Dhamaal' where she will feature in a special dance number.
She has recently wrapped up shooting for upcoming multi-starrer venture 'Kalank'. The period drama is directed by Abhishek Varman and produced by Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiadwala, and Fox Star Studios.
Beside Sonakshi, the film also stars Madhuri Dixit, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Kunal Khemu, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles. It is slated for a 2019 release. Moreover, the actress will also star in Akshay Kumar's next project 'Mission Mangal' which finally went on floors in November 2018.
