Story highlights

This comes after Kangana and her sister Rangoli were summoned by a Mumbai court with regards to a defamation case filed by Aditya in 2017.

In a shocking update, actor Aditya Pancholi has been booked for rape by the Mumbai Police. 

The Mumbai Police filed an FIR against the Bollywood actor-producer based on the complaint of an actress at the Versova Police Station.

Versova Police Station has registered a case under sections 376, 328, 384, 341, 342, 323, 506 of IPC.

While the police have filed an FIR, they have said that it would be difficult to prove the case and gather evidence since the case is almost 10 years old. 

The actress, in her complaint, said that she was raped on several occasions by Aditya Pancholi. 

Aditya Pancholi's last major role in a Bollywood film was in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ‘Bajirao Mastani’ in 2015.
