Mumbai: ‘Bigg Boss 5’ inmate Amar Upadhyay fears danger of becoming a real inmate of the law. As if the stress of surviving in the nation’s most watched house was not enough, a new crisis has cropped up for TV actor Amar Upadhyay.
Buzz has it that an Udaipur court has asked Amar Upadhyay to present himself for his alleged role in a bounced cheque case.
Reportedly, Upadhyay had floated a company called Mihir Virani Multitrade Pvt Ltd, in Malad (West), which followed the finance-chain-membership system. The actor had named the firm after his screen name - Mihir Virani, a character hugely successful from hit TV serial ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ in the hope of using its popularity to attract more investors.
However, the business layout went awry following a complaint filed by Udaipur-based Harinarayan Soni, who had invested in the company and earned profits worth Rs 7 lakh in 2001. Trouble started when the cheque issued eight years later by Upadhyay’s company bounced.
After Soni filed a case, the court summoned the actor one-and-a-half years ago, but Amar was unavailable when the summon was delivered at his Malad office. As of now, a second summon has been sent to the actor.
“If we receive the summons, we will deliver it to Upadhyay, no matter where he is,” said an officer from the Bangur Nagar police station.
This clearly means that the next entrant in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house will not be a celebrity but real cops in pursuit of a real offender.
