    Madhur Bhandarkar: I’m speechless and overwhelmed

    Madhur Bhandarkar: I’m speechless and overwhelmed

    The filmmaker says he is relieved after the Supreme Court Monday stayed criminal proceedings against him in a rape charge levelled by actor Preeti Jain
    “I am speechless and overwhelmed with the kind of relief I got from the trauma my family and me have been going through from the last eight years,” Bhandarkar told a TV channel after the verdict was announced. While staying the proceedings, an apex court bench headed by Justice HL Dattu issued notice to the Maharashtra government and Jain on Bhandarkar’s plea to quash the case. Bhandarkar had challenged the Bombay High Court order asking him to face trial in the alleged rape case. “We always said it’s a false case and the case where victim said, ‘Give me the role in 48 hours otherwise I will put a case against you.’ There was no whisper of rape in that whole legal thing. Also, at the same time, she gave notice to another person and said, ‘I am pregnant and you accept the paternity of my child’,” he said. Click here to read more

    Madhur Bhandarkar to face trial in rape case

    The Bombay High Court Thursday rejected the application of filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar to stay the process against him in a Mumbai metropolitan court in the Preeti Jain rape case. “Justice RC Chavan today (Thursday) refused to stay the trial against Bhandarkar, stating that he will now have to face criminal trial,” Jain’s lawyer S Kunjuraman said. “Bhandarkar has tried his level best to buy time by approaching various courts and filing several pleas. But now he has exhausted all his tricks and will have to face trial,” he added.
    In July 2004, Jain had lodged a complaint alleging that Bhandarkar had raped her several times between 1999 and 2004 under the pretext of marrying her and casting her as actor in his movies. A Mumbai metropolitan court had, in September last year, found substance in Jain’s complaint, and issued process against Bhandarkar, directing him to face the trial. However, the magistrate’s court had, in November last year granted anticipatory bail to the Bollywood filmmaker in the case.Click here to read more

    Director Madhur Bhandarkar pleads ‘not guilty’. The A-list director was summoned by court to give his statement on the Preeti Jain rape case filed against him by the aspiring actress in 2004. The controversial case was moved to the Andheri court in 2009. Bhandarkar is ordered to be in court on October 18 to give his statement against the allegations of repeated rape. The director said that he will challenge the order of the court after reading the judgement and Bhandarkar is confident that he will be proven innocent in the court of law. While he has full faith in the law, Bhandarkar’s lawyer is aiming to get an anticipatory bail in the Mumbai Sessions Court.
