Bollywood actor Aditya Pancholi has once again landed himself in a controversy. According to our reports, a Non-Cognisable complaint has been filed against Aditya Pancholi at Juhu police station, for allegedly threatening and assaulting producer Sam Fernandes, outside Sun and Sand hotel in Juhu on January 27. The next day, Pancholi lodged a cross NC complaint against Fernandes for abusing and threatening him.
As per a complaint filed by Fernandes, he was working on a movie with Aditya’s son Sooraj Pancholi. Sam and Aditya reportedly got into a feud after the latter had pressurised him to retain his son Sooraj Pancholi as a lead actor in his upcoming project based on an Indian heavyweight boxer.
Talking about it, Sam told, “I had announced the film with Sooraj in the lead role in 2019. He shot for around 12 days for the project. However, things went away after the first lockdown, as the investors did not want to back a film with Sooraj in the lead. I spoke to Sooraj about it, who himself asked us to go ahead with another actor. However, his father, Aditya Pancholi, insisted that we retain Sooraj and that he would get an investor, but that didn’t happen”.
Fernandes alleged that when they met at the Juhu hotel around 5 pm, Aditya abused and assaulted him. Aditya also threatened that he will not let Fernandes work in the film industry. An hour later, Fernandes approached Juhu police station and lodged a NC against Aditya under sections 323 and 506 of IPC for assault and criminal intimidation.
