A case of cheating has been registered, in Hyderabad, against filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma. A proprietor of a production house has claimed that RGV cheated him after "borrowing" ₹56 lakh from him.

According to the complainant, Varma borrowed the amount from him for producing a Telugu movie Disha in 2020 but later cheated him. The complainant said he got acquainted with Varma through a common friend in 2019. He alleged that in the first week of January 2020, Varma took Rs 8 lakh from him for his film production.

After that Varma again requested him to lend Rs 20 lakh which was given as a loan through cheque on January 22, 2020, and at that time the filmmaker promised to repay the amount within six months, the complainant said.

Later in the second week of February 2020, Varma citing financial exigencies in his film production sought another Rs 28 lakh, the complainant said. “Believing his representation, Rs 28 lakh was transferred to Varma and at that time he agreed to repay the entire amount of Rs 56 lakh on or before the release of the movie Disha,” the complainant alleged. It further said that the proprietor got to know in January 2021 that RGV was not the producer of Disha.
