The court issued an arrest warrant after her repeated absence. The portal reached out to Zareen about the same, but the actress has no idea about it. As the report, she said, “I’m sure there is no truth to this. I’m surprised too and am checking with my lawyer. Only then will I be able to give you some clarity? In the meantime, you can speak to my PR.”
Back in 2018, Zareen Khan was reportedly scheduled to perform during a Durga Puja function in Kolkata. However, the actress didn’t turn up, and the organisers were left waiting for her arrival.
Reportedly, one of the organisers filed a written complaint of cheating against Zareen and her manager. An FIR was registered against both for the same, and they were asked to appear for questioning. Zareen showed up for the questioning and she claimed to be misguided by the organisers. The Veer actress also alleged that the organizers told her the function would be attended by ministers, including Bengal’s chief minister. Before the show, Zareen’s team found out that the event was a small-scale event, in North Kolkata. Zareen had also said that there was a miscommunication over flight tickets and other accommodations, thus she had to skip the show.
A police source said that Zareen had also filed a case against the organisers of the show at a local court. After the investigation, a chargesheet was filed against her and her manager. While her manager appeared before the court and sought bail, the actor neither asked for bail nor appeared before the court. On the work front, Zareen was last seen in Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele (2021).
