Hate Story 3 (2018) actress Zareen Khan, through her lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui, has filed an FIR against her manager Anjali Atha. A Khar police official confirmed the same, but refused to divulge more information citing confidentiality, as requested by Siddiqui.

"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 F.I.R. 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 F.I.R. was interalia registered in the said matter under Section 509 of Indian Penal Code [sic],” Siddiqui said in the statement.

Siddiqui refused to speak anything more than the statement he has issued.

When contacted, Anjali Atha, too, didn’t comment on the matter, but termed the complaint a publicity stunt. “There is no truth to what they are saying. I think this is just a publicity stunt by Zareen Khan,” Atha told Cinestaan.com.

Atha is senior media professional who has managed clients like Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut.
