It was more than a year and a half ago that actor Ameesha Patel came under the scanner for an apparent cheque bounce case amounting to Rs 2.5 crores.

The two had assured Ajay Singh to return the money after the release of the film in 2018. However, the film never released and when he approached the actress for the money, Ameesha Patel gave him a cheque of 3 crore rupees, but the cheque bounced.
"Ameesha and her friend Kunal started ignoring my calls. The legal notice furnished by me was also not answered by the actress. I filed a complaint in the Ranchi district court last year. Now, the Ranchi court has issued a warrant against her," IANS quoted Ajay Kumar Singh’s statement back then.
