Well, Arshi Khan was quick to reiterate that she had a signed contract and that she was approached by a production house who claimed they had signed on Prabhas. The production house gave Arshi Khan a film contract, and she tweeted about the project based on that film contract. The news then died a natural death.

IndiaScoops.com has now learned that the architect of this entire fraud was a casting director by the name of Amit Sehgal, who along with a fake producer Muzaffar Sheikh and another crook by the name of Shahid Khan.

The modus operandi of Amit Seghal is to approach known, but gullible artistes and offer them meaty roles  in big-budget  productions. Everything is fake – the star cast, the distributor, the producer and so on. Sehgal also gives the artiste a contract and at times a post-dated cheque. He then taken 20  to 30 per cent of the cheque amount from the artiste in cash as his commission. Besides Arshi Khan, Amit Sehgal also cheated a well-known Bhojpuri actor Sangita Tiwari and took Rs 5000  from her after giving her a fake cheque of Rs 5 lakh which obviously bounced.

IndiaScoops.com has learned that Amit Seghal has cheated hundreds of struggling artistes both male and female in Mumbai. He recently changed his residence and has shifted to Charkop after people started chasing him. One male artiste whom he conned of about Rs 90,000/- has even filed an FIR against Sehgal, but the cops are going slow on the case, as Sehgal has probably bribed the cops.

He changes his phone numbers several times a year and has at-least 5 criminal cases pending against him in Mumbai. Readers are advised to beware of this professional cheat!
