MUMBAI: Late actress Pratyusha Banerjee’s ex-boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who was recently in the news for tying the knot with girlfriend Saloni Sharma, has been booked for duping people of lakhs of money.
The model–actor, according to media reports, hosted a New Year’s party at a hotel in Juhu and promised that singer Ankit Tiwari would perform, but when he did not reach the venue, the guests were furious and vandalized the property.
Santacruz Police Station received a complaint by the hotel staff regarding the losses they suffered due to this turn of events. According to reports, the hotel suffered losses worth over Rs. 6 lakh.
An FIR was filed against Rahul for cheating.
However, the actor refuted the hotel’s allegations. He told a leading publication, ‘I am going to file a case against the hotel for duping me. I had paid Rs. 18 lakh for food and alcohol for at least 900 guests. However, the hotel stopped serving food after midnight…and the guests got enraged.’
According to another report by the publication, Rahul walked away from the event without settling the bill, which amounted to Rs. 7 lakh.
