    Jeetendra's lawyer rubbished her allegations and called it "baseless and ridiculous". The lawyer issued a statement defending Jeetendra by saying,

    "Such baseless, ridiculous and fabricated claims cannot be entertained by any court of law or the law enforcement agencies after a span of almost 50 years. The Statute has provided a justice delivery system through the Courts, and the Limitation Act 1963 was specifically enacted to ensure that all genuine complaints are made within a maximum time limit of three years, so that a proper investigation is carried out and timely justice is delivered."

    Jeetendra, now 75, who is lovingly known as 'Jumping Jack' is an actor, producer, and is the father of Ekta Kapoor and Tusshar Kapoor.
