Zareen Khan, who made her Bollywood debut with Salman Khan\'s 2010 film Veer, is back in news. The actress has filed an FIR against her former manager Anjali Atha on grounds of character assassination.
According to a report in a leading daily, Zareen, who was last seen in horror film 1921, has found out that her ex-manager was running her down by spreading malicious gossip about her.
The report suggests that Anjali was claiming to be Zareen\'s agent and accepting money on her behalf even after she had quit.
Post this, the Aksar 2 actress filed an FIR on Thursday at Khar police station. Zareen\'s advocate, Rizwan Siddiqui confirmed the news stating that the step was taken to protect his client\'s name and image that was openly being tarnished by Zareen\'s former manager.
"To protect my client Ms. Zareen Khan’s name, image, reputation and dignity from any harm, and also for other willful criminal offences indulged in by my client\'s erstwhile Manager Ms. Anjali Atha, my client was constrained to register an FIR today with Khar Police Station. As the nature of the complaint is privileged and confidential, I would therefore not like to disclose any facts pertaining to the same. At this juncture, I would only like to state that my client\'s name, image and reputation was being openly tarnished by her own erstwhile manager whom she trusted unconditionally, and as the matter now needs to be investigated further. Therefore, an FIR was registered in the said matter under Section 509 of Indian Penal Code," said Siddiqui.
He added, "A woman\'s dignity and reputation is of immense value and cannot be put at risk by anyone by indulging in character assassination, and especially by someone who was a representative and whom you once trusted blindly. My client has taken this matter with the seriousness it deserves."
