In the recent press conference of Satyagraha, filmmaker Prakash Jha was informed that a man claiming to be his son has been collecting sponsorship funds for an event held in a five star hotel in Kolkata. Considering the fact that Jha has only a daughter, the director was mighty upset about the news.
Apparently, the imposter also claimed that the cast of Satyagraha
like Amitabh, Ajay and Kareena will also be present at the event that has been organized in Kolkata. However, Jha who is miffed with a man harming his reputation, immediately took the help of the police. An FIR was filed and Jha has taken a legal recourse in Patna to report the matter. We also hear that the number which the imposter has been using is of a certain Satish Kumar and a formal complaint has been filed against him at the Bhawanipur police station.
While this is not the first incident, directors like Pooja Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt have also been victims of this kind of scam.
