Problems for Hrithik Roshan are just refusing to die down. After dealing with sister Sunaina Roshan's emotional unrest, the actor has now found himself embroiled in a cheating case registered by the Hyderabad police. However, the health and lifestyle company has said that a false complaint was filed against them by the complainant who had allegedly misbehaved with their staff.
A gym user has filed a complaint against Hrithik and three other officials of Cult.Fit Healthcare Private Limited on charges of cheating and criminal breach of trust. The complainant said the fitness centre enrolled more people than it could accommodate and failed to give the slots as promised at the time of registration. He alleged that when he protested he was barred from using their app to book the slots.
According to Inspector K. Laxmi Narayana, Shashikanth, who lodged the complaint with the police last month, alleged that he was not allotted a slot for the workout though he had paid a fee of Rs 17,490 in December last year.
The gym was offering weight loss packages for Rs 17,490 to Rs 36,400 for one year. Shashikanth availed the discount offered at the time of the centre's launch.
He claimed that since the company advertised guaranteed weight loss and daily work out sessions and with Rithik Roshan acting as its brand ambassador, a large number of people registered themselves.
However, in a Twitter response to IBTimes India, Cure Fit has denied the allegations and said that the complainant had misbehaved with their staff which prompted them to take action against him post which he had filed a false complaint against them.
"We are a responsible company conscious of the health and safety requirements of both customers as well as it's staff. The customer in question, Mr. Shashi, has behaved inappropriately and violently with our staff for which we were constrained to take action against Mr Shashi.
"This police complaint appears to have been hence filed subsequently against us falsely, while also mischievously dragging our celebrity brand ambassador, Hrithik Roshan wrongly in it. We are cooperating with the authorities as per due process and evaluating remedial action," the official Twitter handle of Cure Fit clarified in a Twitter response.
Police officer said they were investigating the case.
