Bollywood actress Ameesha Patel has landed in a legal soup. The Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai (2000) actress recently performed at an event at Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh and is now facing a cheating complaint for her brief appearance. The complaint has been filed by a social worker named Sunil Jain, who stated that the actress staged an ‘extremely brief performance.'
Patel reportedly performed for just 3 minutes despite charging approximately ₹4 lakh for one hour’s performance. A police officer who was present at the location told the media, “The actress reached the stage built on the temple premises at around 9: 30 pm and greeted the audience. Ameesha was supposed to perform for one hour, but she left for Indore after giving a performance for only 3 minutes.”
Now, the actress has taken to her Twitter handle and issued a clarification. She said that the event was badly organised and that she ‘feared for her life’.
“Contrary to reports doing rounds about me cheating a social worker, let me clarify, I attended the Navchandi Mahotsav in Madhya Pradesh on 23rd April 2022. The event organized by Star Flash Entertainment and Mr. Arvind Pandey was so badly organized that I feared for my life. I was never supposed to perform at the event, it was only an appearance that I fulfilled," she wrote.

She further continued, "However, when I reached there, I realized that the organizers were playing dirty, things seemed fishy and I was not okay with them. I feared for my life, and I am thankful to the local police who helped me leave from there safely when they saw that all the proof was in my favour. Incidents like these put a question on humanity, but I am glad that good people also exist in this world.”
