Director of a public school filed a complaint against actor Amisha Patel in a local court here for not attending an event at Dalimss Sunbeam School Chaubeypur in December 2015 despite taking advance payment. The court accepted the application of complaint and has fixed April 7 as next date of hearing.

School director Tarun Rupani, who filed the complaint against the actor, her two managers and her personal security man, said, “We invited Amisha Patel for the annual function of our school on December 18. She accepted our invitation. Later, I was in contact with her manager Kunal Gumar, Anil Jain and her security man Sharif.”

Rupani claimed that Rs 3 lakh were deposited to her bank account as advance in two instalments. Return air tickets from Mumbai to Varanasi for the Patel and her security officer were also booked with arrangements for her stay in a hotel in Sarnath.

Voice recording of Amisha was also played on the FM channel and invitation cards were printed. Due to the heavy publicity, a large number of people gathered at the school to catch a glimpse of the actor but she didn’t turn up. Rupani said that the two managers and security personnel of the actor stopped attending his calls.

Rupani filed a complaint against the four, including Amisha Patel, in a local court on March 8. He alleged that the actor’s move of not attending the school function dented the school’s image. The court accepted his complaint and fixed April 7 as date of hearing.
