A Delhi-based stuntman has accused Suniel Shetty of not paying him nearly Rs 1 crore, and dragged him to the Delhi High Court, which has summoned the 49-year-old actor to appear before it on October 19. Chauhan accused the actor of not paying for his services during filming of the movie, The Little God Father, in 2007.
The summons to Shetty and his film producing firm, Pop Corn Entertainment, was issued by High Court’s joint registrar Girish Kathpalia. It also directed him to file within 30 days a written statement in his defence.
Accepting the court notice, Shetty’s counsel Vineet Dhanda said Chauhan had been making claims based on documents “forged by him”. “There are contradictions in the claims of Puran Chauhan, who is physically challenged, as he says something else before the magistrate and something else before the producers’ association,” the counsel told the court.
