A case of cheating and fraud have been filed against the actor and eight others in Chennai. According to a Times of India report, the complaint filed by R Muralidharan claims that he was appointed as a stockist by a merchandise brand called HRX, that was launched by Hrithik Roshan in 2014.
The report further stated that Hrithik and others conspired to dupe him of Rs 21 lakhs. In his complaint, the complainant alleged that the company did not supply the products regularly and even dissolved the marketing firm without his knowledge because of which the products became stagnated as there were no sales. Muralidharan states that when he sent back the products, the accused did not pay him for the same.
Based on the complaint, Kodungaiyur police has registered a case against Hrithik Roshan and eight others. The complaint was filed in June under Section 420 of the IPC (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property).
On the professional front, Hrithik will be seen in the biopic of the mathematician ‘Super 30’, slated to release in January next year. Besides, the actor will also be seen in Yash Raj Films’ dance-action film which features Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor in the pivotal roles.
