A local metropolitan magistrate's court has issued summons to Bollywood actor Govinda, in connection with a 2008 incident when he had allegedly slapped a person on the sets of Money Hai to Honey Hai in January 2008.
After the incident, complainant, Santosh Rai, approached the metropolitan magistrate's court seeking action against the actor under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 352 (assault or criminal force otherwise than on grave provocation) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
"Your attendance is necessary to answer to the charge", reads the summons.
"This is the first summons sent to Govinda after I filed the case", said Rai.
Govinda will have to appear before the court personally or through his representative on October 4.
