Reportedly, following the complaint, a case has been filed under IPC section 417 for cheating, 376 for rape, 342 for wrongful confinement and 506 for criminal intimidation.
However, a statement issued by the producer’s spokesperson denies the charges, “The complaint is absolutely false and bogus with the sole intention of tarnishing Mr Morani’s reputation and image. Mr Morani will be taking appropriate steps in accordance with law to demonstrate that complaint is malafide. He is truthful and innocent and has full faith in the judiciary and is ready and willing to co-operate with the authorities to the fullest extent.”
The complaint was lodged by a 25-year-old lady, last week, alleging that Morani had raped and blackmailed her.
Morani, a good friend of Shah Rukh Khan, was earlier named in the 2G spectrum scam.
