Police begin preliminary inquiry against director Rupesh Paul

Mumbai: The rift between Sherlyn Chopra and director Rupesh Paul of ‘Kamasutra 3D’ appears to have widened after the Bollywood actress lodged a police complain against him.

In a written complaint addressed to the Santacruz police on Monday, actress Sherlyn Chopra alleged that Paul did not pay the remaining Rs 7 lakh, of her total remuneration.

She alleged that Paul had threatened to forfeit her remaining remuneration for the movie ‘Kamasutra 3D’, after she rejected his sexual advances, the police said.

The Santacruz police has begun a preliminary inquiry against director Rupesh Paul after Sherlyn’s complaint.

However, senior inspector Arun Chavan said that the actress did not turn up at the Santacruz police station to record her statement despite repeated requests.

“We requested her to reach the police station and record her statement several times, but she did not come, stating that she has been busy,” Chavan told PTI.

When contacted, the actress claimed that she was occupied with prior commitments due to which she could not go to the police station.

“Either tonight or tomorrow, I will go to the police station to record my statement,” Sherlyn Chopra told PTI.

Earlier this month, Sherlyn Chopra had dissociated herself from the movie ‘Kamasutra 3D’, which is expected to hit theatres by May.

“Allegedly, Paul threatened to use her nude footage as porn in the global commercial porn market and not in the ‘Kamasutra 3D’ movie. Paul said that he would replace Sherlyn Chopra with another actress in the film,” another police officer said, quoting the actress.

The actress also claimed that the director had sent her vulgar and obscene email, besides abusing her, the police said.
