KOZHIKODE: The Kozhikode Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) has issued summons to Prithviraj Sukumaran and Meera Jasmine, award winning actors, to appear before the court on May 16 in connection with a case filed against them for cheating.
Chief Judicial Magistrate K.P. John was acting on a petition moved by the city-based Karimbil Films partner K. Mohandas, under Section 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The petitioner alleged that both Prithviraj and Meera had taken Rs.5 lakh each as advance for acting in a proposed Malayalam film, ‘Swapnamalika' four years ago. Both of them breached the contract by not appearing for acting. They had also failed to respond to a legal notice service on them. This apart, the producer did not get the advance back although a complaint had been sent to them via the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA).
Prithviraj, who has acted in a more than 50 films including Tamil, had won the Kerala State Film Award for his role in ‘Vaasthavam' in 2006 while Meera won the National Film Award for best actress in 2004. — Staff Reporter
