Noted film producer Sajid Nadiadwala was robbed by his personal security guard in the early hours of Friday. The incident happened at his Versova residence, in the North West suburb of Mumbai. The guard — identified as Prabhat Tripathi – managed to escape with Rs 7 lakh in cash and gold ornaments worth Rs 30 lakh.
“The incident happened at 3 am and we have issued a red alert notice to catch the culprit,” Dilip Suryavanshi, Assistant Commissioner of Police, D N Nagar division said.
Tripathi was employed at Nadiadwala’s residence for the last six months.
At about 0300 hours, Tripathi allegedly knocked at the door of the producer’s house and put a revolver to Nadiadwala’s wife’s head demanding he be given all valuables kept in the safe at the house, police said.
“We have just started our investigation. I have no idea about this incident,” Suryavanshi added. A search is on to nab the absconding guard.
Nadiadwala has produced movies like Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Jaan-e-mann and Heyy Babyy. His upcoming biggie Kambakht Ishq stars Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor, and also sees cameos from Hollywood personalities like Sylverster Stallone, Denise Richards and Brandon Routh.
Its really funny that such incidents happens to our Bollywood Celebrities as they themselves potray such characters & events in Films, seems Nadiadwala got a taste of his own medicine.
