While Tiger Shroff is getting ready for his next release - Vikas Bahl’s sci-fi action thriller film Ganapath - Part 1, among his other projects - the actor’s mother and Jackie Shroff’s wife Ayesha Shroff has fallen prey to a rather unfortunate incident. Said to be duped of ₹58.53 lakh by a kickboxer, she had no way out but file a police complaint against the man who was employed with Tiger’s mixed martial arts (MMA) training company. Now, the accused, named Alan Fernandes, has been reportedly booked for “cheating and breach of trust”, as police continue to investigate the case.
According to a report published in Mint, Alan, who was serving as Director of Operations at the MMA Matrix company since 2018, is accused of “collecting money to organise 11 tournaments in India and abroad through the firm and depositing ₹58.53 lakh in his personal account”.
The complaint was lodged at the Santacruz Police Station on May 3, following which Alan was booked under Indian Penal Code sections for “cheating, criminal breach of trust and other offences”.
Quoting the FIR, an official said, “Alan was appointed director in the MMA Matrix firm in 2018. He is accused of collecting money to organise 11 tournaments in India and abroad through the firm and depositing ₹58.53 lakh in his personal account.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, in Ganapath - Part 1, Tiger will appear alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Kriti Sanon. The actor is also shooting for director Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, featuring an ensemble cast that includes Sonakshi Sinha, Akshay Kumar, Alaya F, Janhvi Kapoor, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Jugal Hansraj and Manushi Chhillar, among others.
