Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut of Gangster fame has claimed she is facing a threat to her life from her sister's alleged stalker and has filed a complaint here against him, a police official said today.
Deputy Commisisoner of Police V K Choubey said, "A complaint was filed at Versova police station yesterday and we are investigating the matter."
Police here have written a letter to their counterparts in Uttarakhand, informing the latter about the alleged threats to Kangana, who lives in the metropolis.
In Dehra Dun, Senior Superintendent of Police Sanjay Gunjiyal said Avinash Sharma, on whose alleged instructions acid was thrown on Kangana's sister Rangoli last year, has been "ringing up" the actress on her mobile phone and "threatening to throw acid on her face if he failed to marry Rangoli".
Allegedly acting at the behest of Sharma, his friend Prem Singh posed as a courier boy and threw acid on Rangoli's face in Dehradun on October 5 last year.
Kangana's publicist Parull Gossain claimed the actress had been receiving threatening phone calls and SMSs for the past month from Sharma, who asked her to let him marry Rangoli though she is engaged to another man.
"He (Sharma) also tried to meet Kangana personally," Gossain told PTI. Kangana was not available for comment. Rangoli is reportedly being treated in a hospital in Mumbai for burns sustained in last year's attack.
Uttarakhand Police had arrested Sharma and Singh and a court in Dehradun granted bail to Sharma on November 13. Gunjiyal said police would oppose Sharma's bail in the district court.
