Vivek Oberoi files 25 crore defamation case

    By Kalyani Prasad Keshri

    Last week actor Vivek Oberoi and father Suresh Oberoi received a non-bailable warrant from a metropolitan magistrate court regarding a bounce cheque worth rupees 3 crore. Apart from the duo, four other members from the board of Multimedia Ltd have also been accused of the same. The complainant was filed by Jawaharlal Agicha who informed that he received only Rs 50,000 in January 2010 via cheque, while another cheque of Rs. 3 crore meant for realisation on October 19, 2010, bounced.

    In response to the accusation actor Vivek has retaliated by filing a Rs 25 crore defamation case against the concerned person. The actor who will soon be seen playing a baddie in Krrish 2 claims that the news is false and is an attempt to defame the name of his family and his. The Oberoi's had already filed 2 different Criminal Writ Petitions before the Mumbai High Court dated to 28th July 2011. The HC had stayed the case pending against them to be heard before the Hon'ble Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court at Mazgaon, Mumbai. When the case was brought to the notice of the Magistrate he stayed his own order of issuing the Non-Bailable-Warrant against Vivek and his father.

    When Jawaharlal Agicha realised that all his means to extort money has failed because of the the stay on the notice he went ahead and give false information to the media intentionally to malign Vivek. Vivek's representatives have taken the matter to the concerned authorities and has filed Civil and Criminal Proceedings for the act of defamation including recovery of Rupees 25 crores in damages.

    The actor has also requested any one reporting this case to kindly refer to the facts with the authorities before entertaining any false claims. Vivek, who is currently shooting for Zilla Ghaziabad told Bollywood Hungama, "I am hurt and upset, as the entire news is false and baseless. There is a limit to my tolerance. People should know where to stop. If anyone tries to cause disrepute to my family or extort money, we can't simply sit and take it."
