Reportedly, the incident took place in March 2018 when Ajay gave the whopping amount to Ameesha and her friend Kuunal Goomer.

"They told me the film would release by June 2018 and would be a profitable venture for me. And when I badgered them after the movie didn't release, they promised to return my money with interest in two-three months," he added.

Cheque

A cheque of Rs. 3 crore bounced

Ajay further mentioned Ameesha gave him a cheque of Rs. 3 crore, which bounced.

In fact, when confronted Ameesha and Kuunal not only refused to return the money but also threatened Ajay.

"They threatened me by showing me Ameesha's photos with some influential people. They say the film will release this year, but I haven't got any updates," Ajay asserted.
