Aman's complaint stated that Khanna was once close to her and family. But over the years, due to some personal issues, Aman distanced herself from the businessman following which he kept calling and following her, adds the Zee News report.

Aman also said that Khanna has misbehaved with her and molested her over the past few months. When his actions became beyond control, the actress filed a complaint at Juhu Police Station.
