Rahul Raj Singh (who has been accused of abetting Pratyusha's suicide) had filed a complaint against Kamya earlier this week. He had alleged that he was shown in a bad light in the film. He had even filed a complaint with the police regarding the issue. The court had apparently ordered a stay on the release of the movie.
But, at the prayer meet that was held on April 1, Pratyusha's close friend Kamya Punjabi and the late actress' parents launched the last short film. The film was released online. Apparently, Rahul is miffed with Kamya's move and has decided to sue Kamya for Rs 1 Crore for releasing the film in spite of serving a stay order! Read on to know what Pratyusha's mother and Kamya Punjabi have to say about Rahul Raj Singh....
Kamya Didn’t Receive Any Notice
Kamya Punjabi says that she didn't receive any notice. She was quoted by a leading daily as saying, "I haven't received any notice. If I get, I will answer it in court. I am not scared of anyone. He just sent me a mail via his lawyer."
Rahul’s Motive Is To Stop The Film’s Release
She added, "I got it yesterday at 2 PM. His motive was to stop the film's release but he failed. If he is right, why haven't I got any legal notice? Had I got any notice, I would have obeyed it."
Pratyusha Never Shot For A Film!
Rahul Raj had also claimed that Pratyusha never shot for any film. He was quoted by DNA as saying, "What film is she talking about? How and when did she shoot this film with Pratyusha?"
"I've a record of all of Pratyusha's activities in the months before I lost her. She was always with me. We went together to Ranchi and then to Goa. When did Pratyusha shoot this so-called film with Kamya?"
Kamya Denied Rahul's Allegation
Kamya denied Rahul's allegation and was quoted by SpotboyE as saying, "Does it matter what he says? He floated a story in the media many months ago that he is sending me a legal notice because I have defamed him."
Kamya Do Not Want To Give Importance To Rahul
"That legal notice never reached me. What he says carries no weight at all. Frankly, I don't want to give Rahul any importance." It has to be recalled that Rahul had previously too filed a defamation case against Kamya.
The Film Is Produced By Neeru Nikhat
Kamya also clarified her stand on the subject. She was quoted by an entertainment portal as saying, "It's (the short film) been produced by a friend, Neeru Nikhat."
The Money Earned From The Film Will Be Given To Pratyusha’s Parents
"Whatever we earn from this movie, I will be handing it all over to Pratyusha's parents...People need to realise that it is okay to talk about your issues rather than going through them alone, I want people to know this."
Kamya Questions About Pratyusha’s Dairy
Kamya also questioned about Pratyusha's dairy. She was quoted by the leading daily as saying, "It has been a year, why hasn't he given the diary to the police? In her (Pratyusha's) diary it must have been written that she is depressed and wanted to die?"
Pratyusha Was Not In A Live-In Relationship With Rahul!
While interacting with the media, during the prayer meet, Pratyusha's mother Soma Banerjee clarified that her daughter was not in a live-in relationship with Rahul Raj Singh.
Pratyusha's mother was quoted by IANS as saying, "After coming to Mumbai, my daughter was not in a live-in relationship, Rahul was staying with us. He conspired, separates our daughter from us, and then started staying at her place, calling it a live-in relation. He conspired, created pressure on my daughter and killed her."
For the uninitiated, the Balika Vadhu actress was found hanging at her Mumbai apartment on April 1, 2016. The actress was taken to Mumbai's Kokilaben Ambani Hospital by her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who later went absconding.
Pratyusha's friends and parents cried foul play and felt Rahul was the reason for Pratyusha's death. But, the mystery is yet to be solved.
Rahul was also in news for cheating many girls! An FIR was also registered against him as he was accused of molesting an actress and her producer-friend at a restaurant in Oshiwara. He was also arrested and booked for drunk driving in Santacruz.
