Madhur Bhandarkar to stand trial for rape case

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar will face trial for allegedly raping aspiring actress Priti Jain. She filed an FIR against Madhur way back in 2004 for raping her. In her complaint, she said that Madhur had sex with her 16 times between 1999 and 2004.

"Madhur had promised to give me a lead role in his films. However, he didn't offer me a lead role in any of his movies. At times when I refused, he raped me," she had alleged then.

Priti complained that after she came closer to Bhandarkar, he had made three films Chandni Bar, Satta and Aan but he cast her in none of those films.

"Bhandarkar's forthcoming movie, Page 3, also does not feature me," she had told after filing her case.

Priti in her complain claimed that Bhandarkar had promised to marry her and make her a star.
