Style actor Sahil Khan headlines for two reasons that are currently the talk of the B-town. A Mumbai court has registered a case against the actor after the actor and former Mr India winner Manoj Patil attempted suicide on Thursday.
Sahil Khan and Manoj Patil’s controversy:
Manoj accused the Sahil Khan of instigating and mentally harassing him. Before attempting to suicide, the model had written a letter to the Oshiwara Police and alleged that Sahil has been defaming him on social media for so long. Manoj also sought an FIR against the actor.
Speaking to India Today, Manoj’s mother said, “My son told me that he was being mentally harassed by Sahil Khan. It came to a state where he said I feel like ending my life and he tried to take his life.”
Later, the accused held a press conference to present his side of the story. “I had met a boy named Raj Faujdar on a social networking site. He’s from Delhi and had made a video that Manoj Patil took Rs 2 lakhs from him and sold him expired steroids after which had developed some heart problems and skin issues as well. Faujdar has all the necessary bills and receipts of financial transactions. He wanted social media support, so I posted his video on my social media platforms asking people to support Faujdar. I also said that the steroids racket should stop. Faujdar had said Manoj Patil was not returning his money and he had even sold his motorcycle to arrange for funds”, Etimes quoted Sahil Khan.
Ayesha Shroff and Sahil Khan’s controversy:
Another reason Sahil hitting the headlines is his ongoing legal battle against Ayesha Shroff. Reportedly, the duo had started a production company together in 2009. Ayesha and Sahil have also been linked up for sharing a romantic relationship. Ayesha rubbished all the rumours. Reacting to this Sahil Khan revealed that Ayesha asked him to return all the gifts and the money they spent on their trips.
Following his revelation, Ayesha filed a case against him for cheating and failing to return her money. She also filed a defamation case against him.
Cut to 2021, Ayesha Shroff, wife of veteran actor Jackie Shroff, ended the 6-year-long legal battle and withdrawn her FIRs for cheating and intimidation case against Sahil Khan.
