Actor Suniel Shetty has filed a police complaint against a film production company. He says that the producers at Balaji Media Films private limited have shared a fake poster for a movie, lying about him playing the film's lead.

Suniel said that the producers used his pictures without his permission. His complaint, registered at the Versova Police Station, called it an act of 'complete fraud'.

Speaking to Mid-day, Suniel said,


I don’t know whose film it is and who they are, nor did I sign this film. They are openly exploiting an artiste. They are trying to get the film financed using my name. This is ruining my reputation and as such, I decided to file a complaint.

The production house has called it a mistake, adding that they were not seeking money from anyone with help from the posters. Ranveer Singh, the manager of the production house, said,


We made a mistake. We were preparing for the casting of our two films keeping two to three actors, including Shetty and Bobby Deol, in mind. We made a poster using their photos just to check how they look. But someone made the posters go viral on social media. The posters were later deleted.

In a tweet shared by Suniel on Thursday, he said that he was more concerned about how young persons would have been duped by the posters. "Thank you for putting it out there Sami ... more than using my picture and financial exploitation it is about exploiting young vulnerable talent," he wrote.

Suniel is now looking forward to the acting debut of his son Ahan. The first posters for his movie Tadap were unveiled earlier this week. Ahan stars opposite Tara Sutaria in the movie.
