"An event organizer who couldn't live up to his commitment obviously thinks he can make a fast buck by maligning my crystal clear image in the press," she tweeted on 12 July (Friday).

In February, a case was registered against the actor and four others for allegedly accepting Rs 24 lakh for a stage performance and not turning up for the event. The event was scheduled to take place in September 2018.

The Uttar Pradesh Police on Thursday visited the Mumbai residence of Sonakshi in a bid to reach out to the Bollywood actor. However, the actress was not available at home.

In the post, the actor asserted that she is ready to cooperate with the authorities during the course of the investigation.

The case was registered under sections 420 (cheating) and 406 (criminal breach of trust)of the Indian Penal Code.

Sinha was last seen in Dharma Productions' Kalank alongside Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapoor. Varun Dhawan and Sanjay Dutt. Her other upcoming projects include Mission MangalDabangg 3 with Salman Khan and Khandaani Shafakhana with Badshah.
