A case of an alleged rape of a 17-year old girl was registered against film director Ravi Naidu and five others, including Marathi film and stage actor Ramesh Bhatkar.

According to Wonowri police with whom the minor's mother lodged a complaint on Tuesday night, Naidu lured the girl with a promise of offering role in films and raped her at his farmhouse in last March.

She was taken to Bhatkar's residence in Kothrud area in August where the actor allegedly solicited sexual favours.

The girl was let off from the flat after she raised an alarm, the complaint said. Bhatkar has been booked under IPC 354, police added.
Naidu also took the girl to Hyderabad and Mumbai and kept her in confinement, the complaint added.
