Ranbir Kapoor has reportedly not been called in for an interview as an accused in the Mahadev money-laundering investigation. According to sources in the Enforcement Directorate (ED), who were cited in a report by News18, the actor has been contacted to ascertain his awareness of the source of the money he got to promote the betting app. According to reports, the ED has requested that Ranbir appear before their Raipur, Chhattisgarh office on October 6th.
“Ranbir Kapoor has been asked to attend so that he may comprehend the betting industry transactions. He has not yet been called as an accused at this time. It’s critical to probe him regarding his awareness of the origins of the funds he received. An ED source familiar with the development was reported in the report as suggesting that it might reveal the promoters’ and their association’s plans.
“Ranbir Kapoor may not be a conspirator, but he is very important to understand the scam,” it continued. He allegedly received paid for carrying out advertising for the app. Numerous additional actors and celebrities are reportedly being investigated by the ED in this matter and may be contacted soon.
The Mahadev software allowed for unlawful wagering on a variety of online games, including badminton, tennis, football, cricket, card games, and chance games. Saurabh and Ravi Uppal, who reside in Dubai, are said to run the app. Because gambling is permitted in Dubai but not in India, the business operates there.
Up to 17 Bollywood stars, including Shradha Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, Sonakshi Sinha, and others, are suspected of breaking the law by attending or giving performances at Sourabh Chandrakar’s wedding in February of this year and the company’s success party in September of last year, according to sources in the ED who spoke to News18 earlier.
