Atha, who has previously worked for Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut, was even accepting money on Zareen's behalf despite quitting the job as her manager, alleged Khan.

Zareen's advocate, Rizwan Siddiquee, has confirmed the news stating that the FIR was launched in order to protect the actress' image and reputation, which was being unfairly maligned by Anjali. He said that the complaint was lodged under Section 509 of Indian Penal Code.

No other details were revealed by Siddiquee, who stated that the matter was confidential and personal. Both Khan and Atha have refused to comment on the matter.

Khan's last outing at the theatres was Vikram Bhatt's horror film 1921, which released in January earlier this year.

Her body of work includes films such as Hate Story 3, Veer, Housefull 2 and Aksar 2 among others.
