On Thursday, Zareen Khan registered an FIR against her former manager Anjali Atha at the Khar police station.
A source told Mirror that the 31-year-old actress who was last seen in Vikram Bhatt’s horror film, 1921, in January, has learnt that Anjali was running her down in the film industry and spreading malicious gossip about her.
The manager who has also worked with Hrithik Roshan & Kangana Ranaut in the past, was claiming to be her agent and accepting money on her behalf even after she quit.
Zareen’s advocate, Rizwan Siddiquee, confirmed the news, stating the move was to protect his client’s name, whose image, reputation & dignity was being openly tarnished by her own erstwhile manager whom she trusted unconditionally, and also for other willful criminal offences indulged in by her.
However, he refused to disclose any facts pertaining to the case, pointing out that the nature of the complaint is privileged and confidential.
He added,“The matter now needs to be investigated further therefore an FIR was registered in the said matter under Section 509 of Indian Penal Code,” he informed. “A woman’s dignity and reputation is of immense value and cannot be put at risk by anyone indulging in character assassination, especially someone who was her representative once and was trusted blindly.”
The actress preferred to let her lawyer speak for her while Anjali when contacted said, “No comments.”
