Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi has been duped of Rs 1.55 crore. The actor has filed a case against his own business partners Sanjay Shah, Nandita Shah and Radhika Nanda through his accountant Deven Bafna.
The actor alleges that his three partners had taken Rs 1.55 crore from him in the name of investing in a company involved in making films and organizing events, but invested the money for their personal use. Now Mumbai’s MIDC police is probing the matter.
On Wednesday, the actor’s CA Deven filed a case against three people at the MIDC police station in Andheri East. Deven said in his statement – Vivek’s family started a company named Oberoi Organics in 2017.
Since it was not doing very well, he decided to bring in the first three men (who are now accused) as partners in the firm. After this Vivek dissolved this business and converted it into an event business by the name of Anandita Entertainment. This deal was done between the two parties in July 2020.
According to reports, some time back the actor had transferred his 33.33% shares to Oberoi Mega Entertainment, which is his own company. Reportedly the day to day work of this joint venture was to be handled by Sanjay Shah and Radhika Nanda.
A MIDC police office said in its statement – Oberoi came to know about this fraud going on in the venture in April 2022 through an employee. After this, he took the help of CA Bafna to solve the matter. It has been claimed in the media report that Sanjay misused these money for his personal use. With this he paid for the life insurance of his mother Nandita.
