Complaint filed against Tiger Shroff, Sabbir Khan for fraud

A police complaint has been filed against Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff and director Sabbir Khan on charges of fraud. A Lokhandwala-based filmmaker named Kritik Kumar Pandey lodged the complaint in Versova police station accusing the ‘Baaghi’ actor and director of stealing the script of the duo’s upcoming collaboration titled ‘Munna Michael’.

The complainant alleged that the script of ‘Munna Michael’ has been stolen from that of ‘M J Return’ written by him.

A statement released to the press by the filmmaker stated, “Hi, this is Kritik Kumar, a director by profession. Recently I became victim of a fraud. Mr Tiger Shroff with the help of Mr Sabbir Khan, Caa Kwan talent and Viki Rajani did fraud with me."

"Mr Tiger Shroff took my story a year back and kept taking all the details of my project ‘M J Return’. He even took the teaser of my film with the commitment of working on it with me. But now he has announced another film 'Munna and Michael' which is totally my film and my story. He just changed the name of film from ‘MJ Return’ to ‘Munna and Michael’. In this context I have lodged a complaint in Versova police station," the statement read.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Tiger and Sabbir will be coming together for the third time for an action-romance ‘Munna Michael’ and Tiger’s alleged girlfriend Disha Patani will be starring opposite him.

The story is said to be about a slum boy Munna who idolises legendary dancer and singer late Michael Jackson. To be produced by Viki Rajani of Next Gen Films, the film was said to roll on floors in September.
