Ayesha Shroff, the wife of veteran Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff, has withdrawn two FIRs filed against Sahil Khan over the allegations of cheating and criminal intimidation in her 2015 complaint.
The Bombay High Court on Wednesday quashed the FIRs which were registered by the Bandra police after Ayesha Shroff and Sahil Khan's lawyer told the court that they had settled the dispute between them amicably.
Ayesha Shroff told the HC that while she had also raised an issue of non-payment of dues by Khan worth over Rs 4 crore in her complaint, she had decided not to pursue the claim or any other allegations made in the two FIRs.
The bench accepted statements of both the parties and quashed the two FIRs, noting that the case seemed to have arisen out of a "business dispute". It, however, imposed a cost of Rs 1 lakh on Khan and said the money will go to the Maharashtra child welfare committee for the "welfare of children under the state's care".
Last year, Sahil Khan, who is best known for his debut role in Style, had claimed that he fell prey to the nasty power play of a Bollywood superstar. In a cryptic post on Instagram, the actor talks of how the superstar, who "gets intimidated by talented newcomers" in the industry, got him thrown out of several projects.
Sahil Khan took to Instagram to share a photo of himself on the cover of a popular film magazine where he features alongside superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. Sahil's explosive confession comes as he remembers late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
