Pratyusha Banerjee's boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh files FIR against Kamya Punjabi; claims defamation
Rahul Raj Singh claims that Kamiya Punjabi's short film on Pratyusha Banerjee is just an attempt for her to gain fame.
Just yesterday, Kamiya Punjabi announced that she is all set to release a short film Hum Kuch Keh Naa Sakey featuring late best friend, Pratyusha Banerjee.
Punjabi told Bombay Times: "Though a work of fiction, it will seem quite similar to what Pratyusha must have gone through. She will be seen heartbroken, resorting to vices like drinking and smoking."
However, just a while ago, Pratyusha's boyfriend, Rahul Raj Singh claims that Kamya has tampered with an old video which defames him and his late girlfriend.
Rahul has gone ahead and filed an FIR on Kamya's name at the Versova police station. Indian Express reported him telling the police, "During our relationship, Pratyusha has not made any short film. This Kamya Punjabi in order to gain publicity has used my name and tampered video." Check out the FIR copy below:
Punjabi however seems to be just laughing it off. "Had there been any credibility to what he is saying, I would have got a call by the police or they would have taken some action. I don’t know why that man is giving himself so much importance. I am not answerable to him. He can say what he wants to say. People can see that it is Pratyusha in the video. He has nothing to do with the film," she said.
Hum Kuch Keh Naa Sakey is set to release on Banerjee's death anniversary on 1 April.
The anticipatory bail hearing of Rahul Raj Singh, for allegedly abetting his girlfriend Pratyusha Banerjee's suicide, has been adjourned until 25 April
