Mumbai — Actress Shilpa Shetty has decided to seek legal advice after the Kolkata police lodged a complaint against her for alleged fraud of Rs. 9 crore.

According to the complaint, Shetty had allegedly induced a city-based company to invest the large amount in a company run by her.

The 39-year-old actress took to Twitter to slam the accuser.

“Seeking legal advice … He’ a defaulter and clearly a fraud, going by his reputation. So annoying! Crazy news! I dare this Manoj Jain to submit proof to his ridiculous claims. His two-minute fame can’t be at the cost of my hard-earned reputation,” she wrote.

The case is initiated against Shetty and Ripu Sudan Kundra of Essential Sports Private Limited (ESPL) in Bandra, Mumbai on the basis of the complaint filed by MK Media Private Limited’s representative Debashis Guha.

Guha, in his complaint, alleged that ESPL took a sum of Rs. 9 crore through Real Time Gross Settlement and a check from MK Media Private Limited with a promise of repayment of 10 times the invested amount within two years.
