MUMBAI : Actor Digangana Suryavanshi recently sued Show Stopper director Manish Harishankar for defamation after the filmmaker accused her of financial impropriety and dishonest business practices. Digangana filed a complaint under IPC sections 420, 406, 509, 499, 500, 503, 506, 63, 199, and 211 along with a defamation notice. Manish accused the actor of "extortion" and "breach of trust," but she has denied his claims.

The production company behind Show Stopper, MH Films, filed an official complaint against Digangana with the police a few days ago. They charged her with grave violations of IPC sections 420 and 406. The complaint claims that Digangana gave misleading information that actor Akshay Kumar and his organization were going to be the sponsors of the project.

Reacting on the same, Digangana said, “Manish’s narrative is his twisted imagination, it’s all untrue. A cheap publicity stunt of simply dragging names, clearly he’s trying to find a bakra so he can bail out from not being able to sell the show even after more than two years. I don’t want to waste any more time explaining further, I’ve already wasted too much time trying to help him.”

Digangana’s lawyer Rajendra Misha stated, “We would like to officially quote that all the allegations made against our client Digangana are absolutely baseless and an outcome of someone’s criminal intention and trying to cover up their own shortcomings. Our client has known Manish for 7 years and is an actress on his series showstopper, when Manish was in a situation where he clearly couldn’t help himself , he asked for help from our client and proposed a business deal where his team had executed an MOU between him and our client.”

He further added, “Strangely, Manish Harishankar doesn’t understand that extortion doesn’t happen in legal binding; it’s called business. Under the terms of the MOU. Our client had gotten a presenter on board, and honoured her side of the commitment.”

He concluded saying, “Which is when our client further requested the presenter and after re-editing the show (for which our client invested 4 days at the edit suit) the presenter watched the episodes and agreed to present the show, although a lot of changes were still required, but Manish promised to fix them after their agreement.”
