In a shocking turn of events, Bollywood actress Zareen Khan finds herself in the middle of a legal quagmire. A Kolkata court, specifically the Sealdah Court, recently issued an arrest warrant against the actress. The core of this dispute traces back to 2018, where Zareen allegedly accepted ₹12.5 lakh from a city-based event management company to inaugurate six Kali Puja pandals. However, the firm claims that the actress didn’t honor her commitment.
As the narrative unfolds, it has come to light that an arrest warrant was directed not only at Zareen but also her former manager. The duo had collaborated with the event management firm for a function commemorating a religious festival. The company has accused Zareen of not attending the concert despite being paid a hefty sum in advance.
Zareen Khan, known for her impressive filmography, made waves with her Bollywood debut alongside superstar Salman Khan in Veer. She subsequently graced the screens with performances in movies like Housefull 2 and 1921. Her most recent stint was in Harish Vyas’ film Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele, which saw its release in 2021.

While the court’s decision was majorly influenced by Zareen’s consistent absence from the proceedings, the actress remains vocal about her bafflement regarding the charges. Zareen emphasizes her lack of clarity on the allegations and has openly expressed her disbelief, sharing that she’s in consultation with her legal team to shed light on the matter.
A curveball in this unfolding drama is Zareen’s statement during the primary investigation. She asserted that the event organizers had provided misleading information, suggesting the attendance of Bengal’s chief minister and other significant political figures.
With Zareen’s reputation on the line and the entertainment industry abuzz with speculations, the coming days will undoubtedly reveal more about this Bollywood controversy.
