New Delhi: Bollywood’s heartthrob, Hrithik Roshan’s estranged wife Sussanne Khan is in news for all the bad reasons as she faces charges on allegations made by a construction company, Emgee enterprises for misrepresenting herself as an architect to get the contract. Emgee Enterprises had recruited Sussanne on September 2013 for architectural and designing services of their new Project Naira Complex, which was being constructed at Siridao in Tiswadi, North Goa. Following these allegations, Susanne Khan has been booked by Goa Police in an alleged Rs 1.87 crore cheating case.
Repudiating the charges, Sussanne Khan exclaimed it as false and an attempt to intimidate her to withdraw the arbitration proceedings she formerly invoked to claim her struck dues, saying, “It is alleged that I have cheated Emgee Enterprises and misrepresented to the complainant that I am an architect. The complaint is motivated and preposterous and has been only filed to intimidate me and pressurize me to withdraw the arbitration proceedings initiated by me in the first instance to recover my dues and damages resulting from breach of contract.”
Explaining the vile of this contemptible case, she was reported saying, “I have challenged the termination of the contract and have invoked arbitration under the contract for recovery of my dues. As a counter-blast to the said proceedings Mr. Mudhit Gupta only with the intention to harass and pressurize me to give into his frivolous counter claim initiated the criminal complaint. I have not made any misrepresentation and have maintained the highest standards of ethics in discharge of my work.”
Further she added, “I am going to take the arbitral proceedings to the logical conclusion and instead of getting intimidated will respond to the frivolous charge in the most befitting way possible. Such wild allegations do not scare me. Rather it encourages me to stand and respond. The allegations are false and defamatory and I will take the appropriate action in accordance with the law.”
Mudit Gupta, Managing partner of real estate firm, Emgee group accused Sussanne Khan for two assertions, prior is her misrepresentation as an architect to secure the contract and secondly of her failed attempt to deliver the project within the period stipulated in the contract.
